ABOUT THIS WINE
"Generous grape capable of expressing peculiar characteristics according to the time of harvest"
Crushing is followed by brief maceration at controlled temperatures and soft pressing. After temperature-controlled fermentation, the wine ages on the lees in a natural micro-oxygenated environment until the spring. The cuvèe is prepared in the late summer when the wine is bottled without filtering.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Mauro and Alessandra are leading the charge in furthering biodynamics throughout their region. More than 6 years ago they implemented biodynamic practices to give back to the soil. They now work closely with 6 other small, independent wineries and farms in the area and collectively they share the biodynamic sprays and treatments. “A rising tide lifts all boats,” Mauro believes in helping to improve the practices of his friends and neighbors as well as improving the wines of BorgosanDaniele. For all the varietal wines, two select harvests allow for the grapes to be picked at maximum ripeness, the first harvest adding to freshness and acidity and the second adding depth and richness. We feel that the Malvasia showcases these two combined approaches very well. The broad texture of this wine is accented by rich fruit flavors of apricot and quince, and a strong floral presence on the nose and finish. The richer fruits are complimented by a mineral backbone of citrus that leans towards lime. Extra time on the lees adds a little bit of phenolic tension that makes this a satisfying wine experience from start to finish. These white wine offerings from BorgosanDaniele evolve over time in the glass and get better as they open up and express their full potential.
