Story

From Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant:

Venezia Giulia Malvasia Istriana “Chioma Integrale”

  • Aged for 7-8 months, 50% in 5-year old + 11hl oak barrels and 50% in 2.5hl barrels that are between 5 and 15-year old
  • Aged in bottle for 3-4 months
  • Chioma in Italian means “long hair” and “canopy of tree leaves.” This relates to the Duline vineyard management philosophy where they do not trim the vines during the growing season. The vines are allowed to have “long hair” or are free to grow their canopy. This is true from all Duline vines, not just the Malvasia.
