Valle is a blend of Malvasia Istarska and Sauvignon Blanc with the former giving body and texture and later giving vibrancy, freshness, and aromatic complexity. Valle 2021 shows medium deep golden colour. On the nose it is quite pronounced, youthful, and aromatic. Sauvignon Blanc looks to dominate the blend giving plenty of tropical fruits, grapefruit, mango, oranges, passion fruit, lemons and freshness. Very dry on the palate, while acidity levels are on the medium side. 2021 is bringing lovely, powerful version of Valle, with plenty of aroma and mouthfeel. Very Mediterranean and fresh at the same time.

Valle is very much a classic aperitif wine. Vintage 2021 due to its richness will go very well with salads, vegetables, risotto, and pasta. Will perform finely as a wine by glass in a good restaurant.

Enjoy it now, though it will work well during 2022-2023.
