Malvasia delle Lipari Passito DOC
95% Malvasia and 5% Corinto Nero. Hauner Malvasia delle Lipari “Passito” DOC is amber in color with a nose reminiscent of dried figs, dates, ripe apricots, honey and sweet spice. The palate is velvety and complex, with a delicate sweetness on the finish.
“At Hauner we believe that, given the amazing soils, unique landscapes, and fantastic grapes of the Aeolian Islands, we are honor-bound to create wines worthy of such fruit.”
