SALINA IGT

MELIGUNIS

100% MALVASIA

Try the exotic flavours of Salina

Meligunis, the ancient name for the island of Lipari indicating a delightful climate, is the name of our dry Malvasia. Produced from the volcanic soil on Salina Island, Meligunis has an intense fruit flavour with exotic overtones.

During the harvest, the bunches are picked entirely by hand and processed using the best vinification techniques to enhance the characteristic aromatic notes and carry them through to the glass.
