Dry still white wine with light sugary residue, from the Malvasia di Candia Aromatica grapes

cultivated for centuries in the Piacenza Hills, resulting in a light, still wine. Sorriso di

this vine variety, not only aromatic and pleasant, but also structures, complex and long lasting,

something no one had ever tried up to that point.
