Malvasia Bianca Dolce

Malvasia Bianca Dolce Wine Details

Description: Delightful aromas and flavors of honey and ripe pears with hints of pineapple and coconut. Round, lush fruit and a plush texture linger on the palate with a sweet finish of vanilla. All the flavors of a tropical vacation.

Varietal Definition
Semi-classic grape cepage of ancient, probably Greek, origin. Widely grown in Italy as distinctive area sub-varieties, such as Malvasia di Candia, Malvasia Istriana etc. Used to produce dry and sweet white, and light red, wines with high alcohol content and residual sugar. Also widely grown in Portugal and the island of Madeira where the important wine-name Malmsey is an English word corruption of Malvasia.
