White Malvasia Passito
Les petit filles dessert wine, amber yellow in colour. Obtained from ripe white Malvasia grapes that immediately after harvesting are placed to dry until the desired sugar level is obtained.
The nose is intense, with hints of dried figs and almonds. It is a full-bodied raisin wine, almost chewy, and on the palate it is sweet at the right point, with a lingering aftertaste. A wine for the end of a meal, to be paired with dry cakes, almond pastries and cheeses. It should be served cold, ideal to accompany long conversations or solitary meditations.
