Staff Pick

The Clivi Malvasia is 100% Malvasia Istriana from 80 year old vines on soils of marl and sandstone flysch of Eocene origin. The vineyard is in Brazzano di Cormons, Province of Gorizia, along the Slovenian Border with Friuli. This complex and racy white is lightly aromatic, marked by very gentle camomille aromas. Acidic yet delicate, a perfect example of balance.

Estate History: I Clivi founder Ferdinando Zanusso was raised in the world of wine, his father made wine for his tavern in Treviso, in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia. After travelling and spending time in Paris, Ferdinando purchased a vineyard in Friuli in 1996 and soon after his son Mario, now at the helm of the estate, joined him. Vineyards are all worked by hand, dry farmed and certified organic, with vines from 50 to 80 years old.
