"The most pleasant adventures heppen when least expected." Italo Svevo
The meeting between Malvasia istriana and Glera, mother vine of Prosecco, cultivated on the hills between Val Rosandra and Rio Ospo, gave birth to this wine, fresh and fragrant as a Spring evening.
Pale gold color and a decided and mineral nose reflecting a complex and evolved bouquet.
Tasting reveals a full and fresh mouth, light and elegant. It closes on a persistent mineral finish. Awesome scented aperitif and perfect with white meat and roasted fish.
VISAVÌ recalls the widely used saying in Trieste dialect of French origin vis-à-vis, which stands for “in front of." A wine that should always be at hand.
