Malvazija Anno Domini 2020



Malvazija Anno Domini 2020

Malvazija Anno Domini is the essence of the Motovun terroir. It is a complex and matured wine with a long aging potential. The grapes come from our oldest vineyards in ratio depending on a particular year, the amount of rainfall and the average temperature. Aging in older big wooden barrels, aromatically neutral, it develops its varietal characteristics and the stamp of terroir. It is a wine with remarkable longevity, suitable for wine collectors and true appreciators of the noble nature of aged wines.

Year: 2020

In terms of the vegetative growth, 2021 was a regular, classic year. At the beginning of the cycle there was a period of quite damp weather, especially throughout April and May, and later the rainfall subsided, while August, September and October were completely dry and warm. The result was less lushness and lower yield, higher phenolic concentration and very healthy grapes with potentially high sugar content. The harvest was completed around 20 September, as the final harvest for all Malvasia grapes.


Deep yellow-green colour with a golden reflection. Intense and complex on the nose with primary aromas of Malvasia like ripe peach combined with ripe autumn fruit, pear and quince, and hints of spice in the background. The palate is characterized by a tingling minerality and the same ripe fruitiness as on the nose. In the mouth it is lively, opulent and intense, with depth and stimulating acidity, it has a persistent, long finish with mineral salinity, and an attractively opulent aftertaste. The potential for aging and additional development is five to ten years after the harvest.

Gastronomic recommendation:

With roast veal, delicate white fish such as John Dory with vegetables, Skradin risotto (veal risotto), pasta with truffles and similar dishes
