Medici Malvasia Dolce Quintessenza NV
100% Malvasia di Candia.
The Quintessenza Malvasia is a Vino Spumante from Medici Ermete. Although Medici Ermete has achieved world fame for its excellent Lambruscos, the winery proves with this sparkling wine that Medici Ermete embodies more than Lambrusco.
The Quintessenza Malvasia glows straw yellow in the glass. The intense bouquet smells wonderfully of light fruit and has nuances of fresh tropical fruits, white flowers and notes of sage. Its fine sparkling carbon dioxide gives this Vino Spumante an invigorating freshness. The taste is sweet and fizzy and fragrant, with fruit flavors and a sweetness that cleanses rather than cloys on the palate. The acidity is finely balanced and also supports the fresh character of the Quintessenza Malvasia.
Serve this Vino Spumante well chilled at 7-9 ° C to underline its fresh style. The Malvasia Spumante Brut is a fine companion to sausage and cheese platters.
