Malvasia wine I.G.P. Puglia
The result of a careful manual harvest, it renews in the glass the bond between the vineyard and the nature, which characterizes the hills of the Murgia of Bari and is expressed in a slightly spicy fragrance of musk, white fruit hints with a quite intense persistence, resulting in a wine suited to all courses. It owes its name to the town near Turi where the family’s great-grandfather consolidated the cultivation of territorial native vines.
