Gelasio

Still Malvasia, between power and softy mouth sensation

Gelasio is like a dance, between freshness and warmth, between power and delicacy.

Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, cold macerated one night with its skins before being vinified, partly in steel and partly in tonneau.

A game of contrasts, with the maceration that makes the wine rich but hard, and the wooden barrel that instead gives it complexity and softness. Maceration is the heart of this ancient and somewhat gruff wine, and refinement is its young and welcoming mind: and as in any dance, the closer and closer they are, the better the final harmony and the ability to convey the passion and sentiment that lie within.
