Alcohol/vol 13%
Superb concentration; one of those rare wines whose high sugar content is sustained by splendid freshness, making it ideally balanced. Characterized by the classic drying process or appassimento that represents one of Salina's most ancient traditions. Excellent with creamy desserts such as tiramisu and English trifle. Also pairs well with sharp cheese blue-veined cheese, like Gorgonzola or Stilton.

Made with dried grapes-95% Malvasia delle Lipari and 5% Corinto Nero-this opens with delicate aromas of dried stone fruit, walnut and a hint of sweet spice. The intense palate shows mature apricot, fig and hazelnut set against a background of acacia honey. Just enough fresh acidity prevents it from being too sweet.
