Poggio Maestrino

Malvasia

IGT

Produced from a typically Tuscan grape generally used for the production of straw wines or vinified together with other grape varieties, this pure Malvasia fully expresses the variety’s distinctive characteristics, from its intense straw-yellow color to its (faintly) aromatic notes and sensation of roundness and sweetness.

The vinification techniques used enhance the minerality and flavor that the wine derives from this rich, generous hilly terrain facing the sea.

SENSORY PROFILE  Intense straw-yellow wine with yellowish-greenish hues that tend to lose their green shade as the months go by.   The nose is fresh, floral and fruity. You can identify hints of small white flowers (hawthorn, peach blossom), white fruit (green apple, white peach) and a light background of acacia honey and undergrowth (broom). The taste is pleasant and balanced, with sweet, slightly aromatic notes typical of Malvasia Toscana. Good minerality and flavor which lengthen its finish.

PAIRING Aperitif, steamed or salted fish. White meats, especially when cooked without tomato, chicken breast with lemon.
