Tasting Notes

Bright golden colour. The aromatic imprint of the vine deeply marks the bouquet with notes of orange blossom, lychee, green peach, grape skin, bergamot and candied sugar. The palate flows through the aromatics with seductive fruit and flinty minerality.
Varieties

There are a multitude of different clones of Malvasia found all over Italy. Although from different origins, they all share some characteristics including a spicy fragrance of musk and apricot and rather high residual sugar. These traits make Malvasia particularly suitable for the production of sparkling and sweet wines. The Malvasia Bianca grape, which is usually used in blended wines, is found mainly in southern Italy but also in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
Region

The Colli Piacentini which give the DOC its title are the hills to the south of Piacenza, Emilia-Romagna’s most westerly city. These are the foothills of the northern Apennines, which run northwest to southeast through Emilia-Romagna, providing a patchwork of terroirs among their peaks and valleys. Many of the vineyards of the Colli Piacentini are planted on the rolling hills leading up to the northern slopes of the Apennine Mountains. The vineyard soils are composed of a mix of clay, marl, sand and sandstone from the Pliocene epoch.
Vineyard

Gazolla is a commune in the Province of Piacenza, in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna, located about 150 kilometres northwest of Bologna and about 15 kilometres southwest of Piacenza. The vineyard was planted in 1998 and is organically cultivated on single spurred cordon.
