Malvasia Lupinc 2022
The best Istrian Malvasia is vinified dry white product unquestionably in Friuli. The area of the Carso with its soil structure summarized in the term Flysch which indicates a compound made of clastic sedimentary rock, the wine releases a rock feature that blends perfectly with the ripe fruit.
Traveling in the Carso both Italian or Slovenian guarantees an opening to nature, because those places refracts light so strong to illuminate the landscape unlike any other place. The Lupinc family, the third generation installed at Duino, can see the open sea and the city of Grado. A breathtaking view. Even the vineyards enjoy this landscape, with a south exposure that ensures full maturation of the grapes. Matej Lupinc with his wife continued the family tradition in making wine and adopting contemporary natural method for making wine.
Only one day of maceration on the skins for all white wines, spontaneous fermentation of yeasts and aged in wood for a part of the must. The other part matures on the lees in stainless steel. The wines then rest in the cellar dug in the karst rock in 1930, in an ideal environment to ensure optimal wine maturity. Slight Matej hand is felt even in the hottest vintages where he manages to tame a fleshy material, giving the wine freshness and incisiveness. A strong and rocky nature as men and women of the Carso.
