Salina is one of the lesser known islands near Sicily formed by volcanic activity where grape cultivation has transpired for over five hundred years. Antonio Caravaglio produces both red and white wines and this Malvasia is truly special. It is crafted in the style of orange wines as it spends ten days on the skins and is finished in stainless steel tanks. "Occhio di Terra" is Antonio's old vines cuvee made almost entirely from Malvasia and a step up from his highly impressive "Salina". Deep golden in color, it boasts intriguing floral aromas along with whiffs of minerals and sea breeze. The palate is round, spicy and complex with lasting flavors and saline on the finish. A wonderful partner for seafood and vegetable dishes.
