Winemaker`s notes:

Valle is a blend of Malvazija Istriana and Sauvignon Blanc in which Sauvignon Blanc is the giving body and texture while Malvazija provides verticality, freshness and aromatic complexity. Valle 2019 shows pale golden color. On the nose it is quite open, vigorous, youthful, showing plenty of green bell pepper, elder tree with hints of fruits like ripe grapefruit, apricot, passion fruit and mango. Quite aromatic, with Sauvignon Blanc notes very much dominating over those of Malvazija. Completely open, ready to entertain us! Bone dry on the palate, with light to medium body, balancing between the acidity and nice long lemony finish. A very nice aperitif or wine by glass!

Combining with food:

This a classic aperitif wine. It will find perfect company with all kind of salads, vegetables, risotto with asparagus all kind of cold dishes including seafood. Great also as a wine by glass in a good restaurant or wine bar. A classic summer wine.

Aging potential:

Best to enjoy it right now, or drink in next two years 2020-2022.
