Bava Malvasia Rose "The Sexiest Wine In The World"
Malvasia di Castelnuovo Don Bosco
Rosé - Spumante DOC
The grapes that produce this exquisitely delicate spumante are known as Malvasia di Schierano characterized by minute bunches of red, aromatic berries and produced in only a few municipalities in the northern part of the province of Asti. The Bava family has worked hand in glove with local winegrowers for over 60 years in order to ensure good results with this variety.
Aside from the fact that it is a great DOC, this wine is excellent as a cocktail and aperitif ingredient. The Bava Malvasia Rosé, produced as a sparkling wine in the late ‘70’s, pioneered the sweet aromatic rosé spumante trend that later was extended to include the better-known Brachetto.
Today, this bottle is an icon in its class, displayed prominently in the best wine shops and a source of prestige for the Bava brand.
GRAPE - ORIGIN:
100% Malvasia di Schierano (malmsey) grown in the vineyards of Castelnuovo Don Bosco and Albugnano; a limited area that yields the most characteristic and uniform results
The grapes are picked in wicker baskets holding approximately 20 kilos, then pressed gently using pneumatic presses. The must is then kept at low temperatures until fermentation of the spumante, after which it is bottled
Cherry-red colour, with sparkling reflections; intense aroma, fresh and refined, with distinct notes of dog rose; pleasantly sweet taste, balanced by a very slight tannic component that leaves a pleasant final note
