Malvasia delle Lipari is a naturally sweet D.O.C. wine that was proclaimed "Nectar of the Gods" by King Diodoro Siculo in the fourteenth century. It is produced from the Malvasia grape and a little Corinto Nero, both of which come from the island of Salina in the Eolie archipelago. The process of drying the grapes in the sun gives Malvasia delle Lipari a highly individual taste and aroma of the land where it has its origins. A combination of modern technology and the countless traditions of the Eolie archipelago, result in a certain fragrance and unity to the warm and velvety taste of Malvasia delle Lipari, which makes it one of the most excellent dessert wines on the market. Malvasia delle Lipari Naturale has a golden yellow colour and a fragrant aroma with a rich perfume of honey, eucalyptus and apricots. It has a warm, well-balanced taste. It is a wine that compared to its alter ego "Passito" has a lower sugar residue.

The producer

Colosi is a company that has been operating in the wine field for four generations. The cellar is managed by the oenologist Pietro Colosi who follows the various steps, from winemaking to refinement and from bottling to marketing the wines. For many years the company has been involved in the production of the ancient Malvasia delle Lipari wine. The company covers an area of ​​ten hectares in Salina (a small island that is part of the Aeolian archipelago) between Capo Faro and Porri. This area is recognized as one of the best on the island both for its exposure and for the chemical-physical nature of the soil which, being of volcanic origin, is particularly suitable for the cultivation of vines. The planting of the vineyard, made particularly difficult due to the morphology of the soil, was carried out in terraces restoring the old dry stone walls. The company produces other typical wines in the areas of Marsala and Salemi in western Sicily.
