    Item #: i_305348
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    PRACTICING ORGANIC

    KERMIT LYNCH WINE MERCHANT - "Chioma in Italian means 'long hair' and 'canopy of tree leaves.' Though it is generally accepted that vines are trimmed of excess leaves or fruit to concentrate a vine’s efforts toward healthy bunches of grapes, Lorenzo and Federica let their vines find their own balance, choosing not to trim any of their vines. Suffice it to say that this is one of Duline’s many secrets to success. Malvasia Istriana is a form of the Malvasia grape that is native to the Istrian Peninsula, and it produces deliciously complex white wines that are a far cry from other Malvasia produced in central Italy. This is a seductive apéritif and an excellent seafood white."

    Aged for 7-8 months: Half of it in 5-year old 11 hectoliter oak barrels, and half in 2.5 hectoliter barrels between 5 and 15-years old.
