"Bruno Trapan grows his malvasia in a terra rossa vineyard near Pula, not far from the sea. This 2011 seems to capture the sunny freshness of the area in its delicate scents of spring blossoms, salty air and crisp green herbs. Underneath, the wine feels broad and leesy, with a vibrant acidity keeping it fresh."
"Straw-yellow in color with slight green tints, this wine has a fresh and fruity
bouquet with a hint of fresh herbs. On the palate, the wine is rich and full-bodied,
with balanced acidity and pleasant minerality. On the palate, it is pleasantly fresh
with a lingering finish of white flowers."
"Drink this wine as an aperitif or with mussels, clams in white wine sauce, or with
young Istrian prosciutto."
