It’s a dessert wine (and not only) fine and elegant, traditionally regarded as a symbol of hospitality and friendship, reserved for special occasions and special people.
The vines called Malvasia are very numerous and not always similar to each other: for this often Malvasia cultivated in Sardinia, to avoid misunderstandings is rightly called Malvasia di Sardegna. The origin of the grape can be traced back to the Byzantine era, when thanks to a flourishing trade in wine to various parts of the Mediterranean, also the grapes spread to Sardinia, circumscribed in the hills of Planargia and Campidano.
There is a clear difference between the Malvasia wine obtained in Campidano and that obtained in Bosa, and it is not entirely due to the different soil and climatic conditions. This would confirm the existence of two different clones of a single variety arrived in Sardinia in two different areas. The Malvasia of Sardinia is one of the aromatic Malvasia.
From this renowned grape are produced two wines DOC with different characteristics: Malvasia of Bosa and Malvasia of Cagliari. What characterizes the traditional production of Malvasia of Bosa, is aging in barrels not completely filled, in the presence of yeasts “flor”. This feature gives to the wine warm and bright golden yellow hue, intense and refined sensory notes of ripe fruit, honey and toasted almonds; on the palate a long and velvety gustatory persistence and expressions of great balance and harmony. The Malvasia di Cagliari which does not require aging in barrel if not for the Riserva, is characterized by a more subtle golden color and more pronounced feeling of freshness given by fine and elegant floral and fruity notes.
