A new label from this winery in Salina island, based on Malvasia di Lipari grapes from a Cru called Tricoli. It's a "Malvasia secca" (dry), light, salty and mildly aromatic. A summer wine. Very good.

I have to admit - I had to look up where Salina, Italy was after ordering this by-the-glass white labeled "must try" on the wine list at a high-end restaurant/bar down the street from me. Turns out Salina is one of the Aeolian islands growing the delicious Sicilian dessert wine Malvasia delle Lipari. This wine comes from those same Malvasia grapes, but is fermented dry. Aromatic and highly expressive - it smells of jasmine, ripe pear, white peach, chaparral, and mint. It's juicy and appetizing and a total treat to taste this corner of the wine world.

Island breeze, salt sea mist, oyster shell, beach flowers, citrus, green apple, caramel, lemon. I love everything about this wine. I should be on a lounge chair at the beach on a very sunny hot beach day and of course drinking this amazing wine.

Excellent salinity and pear, lime and tropical flavors. Would be great with oysters. Goes down smooth and easy.

A little island off the coast of Sicily is where this was born. Tasting sea salt, ocean breeze, oyster shells, wild flowers and a hot sunny day.

Sun and salt. Delicious and unpretentious. Savory and herbal.
