Malvasia Istriana

In the large Malvasia family, the Istrian one also known as Malvasia Friulana or Malvasia del Carso, occupies a prestigious position, more qualitative than quantitative. If the origin of the vine is to be found in the Greek region of the Peloponnese, it is easy to see that the sailors of the Serenissima spread the vine in the small peninsula of the upper Adriatic: it is cultivated in the whole hilly area of Friuli Venezia Giulia, in the plains delle Grave and the Adriatic coast. Because of its morphological characteristics it has nothing to do with the other varieties of the most widespread and known family, such as Malvasia Lunga and Malvasia Bianca di Candia. Istrian Malvasia excels near the sea, where it is loaded with brackish notes which infuse the wine with a savory minerality which is its main characteristic.
