Vino da Uve Appassite "Vino del Volta" (2011)
100% Malvasia di Candia Aromatica. From 30-50-year-old estate vines, farmed organically and harvested by hand. The bunches are picked at normal ripeness and only in perfect health, then dried in the sun for 5-15 days. They are pressed in a by hand in a torchio (a small vertical basket press) and fermented naturally with native yeasts in barrel. The wine is aged in used barrique for around 3 years, followed by 2 more years in bottle. The Vino da Uve Appassite classification does not permit the variety or vintage on the label; the wine is pure Malvasia from a single vintage. "Volta" is the surname of the farmworker who tended these vines for years.
