Hauner Malvasia Delle Lipari DOC Naturale 2020 Cl 50

His small revolutions in the cellar fascinate experts, starting with Veronelli, who bring Hauner’s Malvasia to the table of prestigious restaurants in Italy, France, the United States, Great Britain, Japan. In the 1980s, with the construction of a modern cellar, production expanded, alongside the Malvasia, the Salina Bianco, the Salina Rosso and the Antonello were born, a product of great lineage aged in barrique.

Wine of a luminous bright golden yellow. The nose is of great finesse with evident salty and slightly vegetal notes, a decisive fruity aroma of ripe yellow fruit and citrus holes with hints of vanilla and butter. Fresh and savory mouth in perfect balance with the softness and warmth of alcohol; of good persistence and great harmony.
