Compared to the malvasia family, the Aeolian Islands family seems to have a different story. Less aromatic, it supposedly reached the archipelago in ancient times, around 588 B.C., thanks to the Greeks who colonised Sicily. According to some, it is related to the greco with which the Greco di Bianco is produced in Calabria. And, in fact, even malvasia delle Lipari finds its highest expression in the passito version, protected by the DOC of the same name. A wine that combines the concentration of sugar and the characteristic fragrances of orange peel, orange blossom, candied fruit, sweet date, caramel with a splendid mineral texture typical of the marine and volcanic area. It is vinified, however, and with excellent results, even dry, giving a clear white wine with a good structure, explicitly mineral, sometimes with notes of flint, perfect for simple seafood lunches but also suitable for a little aging.
