Regular price $29.75 Sale

This white wine from the Aeolian island of Lipari, north of Sicily, is an incredible blend of Carricante, Moscato and the local grape called Malvasia Delle Lipari.

This wine needs to be tasted. The wine has terrific persistence and intensity, even with the very modest alcohol of 12.5%, plus a slight saltiness in the aftertaste. Although the Carricante spends three months on its yeast lees in big oak casks (30 hl), there is no perceptible oak flavour, just a richer texture.
