Is it a given to think that a sour wine from the South is supposed to give off heat, colours, scents of fresh and tropical fruit, and intense flavours? Well, picture it in your mind and close your eyes: it actually is! There is an amber wine that emits intense and unexpected aromas that will please and delight you: in fact, you will feel like you’re sitting on a deck chair, on a beach on a small Mediterranean island, sipping your cool wine.
I want to tell you about a nice sweet wine that deserves to be known better: Malvasia delle Lipari Passito. Vintage 2014 of this wine is produced by Barone di Villagrande Estate which has its basement in the territory of Milo, to the south shadows of Mount Etna which is the highest active volcano in Europe (3.329 mt altitude). In June 2013 Etna was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
