IGT Tuscany White Wine
Tuscanian Malvasia has been always traditionally used to complete the aromas of Chianti or of the “Tuscanian White” wines.
In developing this wine we wanted to find out the quality of the pure Malvasia of our Chianti region, when made with modern technology using low temperature (16C) fermentation.
