Edi Kante Malvasia Selezione 2016


In Stock

“Each year Edi Kante chooses one variety to create his ‘Selezione’, and in 2016, Malvasia was his choice. It’s vividly floral with a wave of ripe peaches and apricots that give way to raw almond and fresh vanilla bean nuances. This envelopes the palate with texturally ripe orchard fruits as an enriching hint of custard adds tremendous depth. The 2016 lingers long, with a staining of concentration balanced by a tug of residual acidity and saline minerality. This is a beauty. The Selezione goes through one year of refinement in neutral barriques and another year in stainless steel before resting in the cellar until Kante believes it’s ready for release. Only 3,600 bottles were produced. Drinking window: 2023-2028. 93 points”
