Made with Malvasia grapes that have been dried for 40 days, this intense, savory dessert wine opens with aromas of dates, dried apricot and a hint of thyme. The persistent aromas carry over to the velvety, concentrated palate, along with candied citrus and orange honey. The long, lingering finish closes on a toasted almond note.
