Why we love it
A beautiful white wine made with Malvasia grapes grown in the Colli Piacentini from an amazing wine maker, left on its own lees for 4 months to add complexity to the wine, with a distinctive and intense fruity nose. In the mouth is smooth, fresh, refreshing, lively and with fruity flavour and a never ending finish. A real gem, perfect for rich fish dishes and white meat.
This wine is vegan friendly
The artisan who made it
On the hills of Piacenza, on the Colli Piacentini, on the borders between Lombardia and Emilia Romagna, Luigi, Gino, to his friends, Molinelli makes his own wines. Owner and winemaker, his appearance is reminiscent of a crazy scientist, however, he is a fantastic person to talk to about wine and life in general. Gino is a fairly unconventional wine maker, from the grapes he grows, unusual for the area, to his wine making processes, his wine certainly won’t leave you indifferent. Gino is also greatly privileged to share his name with a variety of grape, the Molinelli grape, this grape was discovered in his vineyards in the 1960’s and, as such, he is the only producer of this grape variety and he uses it to make a fantastic passito.

I really liked this wine and I'm not a big fan of whites generally. Fruity and round, elegant. Very well made.
