An indigenous Istrian varietal, showing nuts, lemon juice, apple, very well-defined fresh fruits and generous body with just a hint of mineral on the finish
The Arman family, led by Franc and Oliver, continue today to cultivate the fundamental values of the traditions with the same fervour as their ancestors who began to plant vine as early as 1850. Because in the beauty and the values of the vineyards lay the essence of life, the foundation and the strong basis for the survival of Istrian families.
During the past half century, the grandfather Edoardo Arman diligently and devotedly was planting Malvasia and Teran. With hard work, in which he put unmistakable love and all his life, he perfected the art of making “good” wine. Today, on the basis of this invaluable tradition, the Arman family rises again and again to new heights and to new spheres of excellence.
Tasting Note: The wine is a pale, yellow straw color, and tinged with green. The aroma is floral and fruity. The taste is crisp, fresh, and pleasantly acidic and is ideal for partnering with seafood, fish, and pasta dishes.
