Del Fiore means “of the flowers”. Malvasia Del Fiore is so named because on the day Malvasia grapes ripen, they project an incredibly lush floral bouquet and flavors of orange blossom and honeysuckle. Yet, the wine has an appealing, crisp texture and lower alcohol.
The winery goes to great length to preserve and enhance this paradoxical character, using family techniques that are several generations old. Ancient Roman in origin, Malvasia is an heirloom grape variety in California.
