Stillato Passito Malvasia Puntinata Lazio IGT
Lazio

This wine is obtained from 100% Malvasia Puntinata del Lazio, which is dried on the vines for about 30 days before being manually harvested. The name is taken from the italian verb “stllare”, which means to pour something drop by drop. It recalls the tradition of sweet wines consumed in Italy during Easter celebrations.
