Rasciatano Malvasia Bianca 2009 IGT

From Puglia Italy, made from hand selected Malvasia grapes fermented in stainless steel and oak, then aged for 4 to 6 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.

Clear and clean lemon colors with medium acidity and body, medium intensity on the nose showing ripe floral aromas and baked apple. Complex flavors reflect floral notes, baked apple, toast, ginger and a vegetal edge of roasted green pepper, followed by a good long finish.

Paired well with baked salmon, butternut squash and kale.
