Malvasia Bianco Secco (Dry)

This wine is produced exclusively from grapes grown on the Lantieri estate, therefore the production is extremely small, from 5000 to 8000 bottles, which are numbered one by one. The agricultural and productive difficulties related to being on an island of just 21 square km, make this incredibly small estate a legitimate example of “heroic” agriculture.
