Malvasia istriana is one of the numerous type of these grapes, less aromatic and more sapid. Harvested in late august 2018, the must remained in contact with the softly pressed grapes for about 5 days when spontaneous fermentation took place; after fermentation it refined in concrete tanks for about 9 months.
