Nestled in the Euganean Hills, a group of volcanic rolling, cone-shape slopes that rise above the Padovan-Venetian plane, is one of the region’s fastest emerging leaders in top quality wine production – Maeli. The winery is directed by winemaker Elisa Dilavanzo, who has drawn new energy from the support given by Gianluca and Desiderio Bisol. With their vision, Elisa has been encouraged to search for new expressions in a grape variety, Moscato Giallo, that still has so much to reveal. The variety of the land, the steepness of the hills, the varying exposition of the vineyards and the peculiarities of the micro-climate motivate Elisa to continue to explore and research every aspect of winemaking in this unique land and ancient varietal.
"The color of this wine is an oscillation of shades of golden yellow with light orange and amber highlights. The milky iridescence is the result of the yeasts suspended in the bottled wine according to the time-honored method. The intense aroma releases nuances of flowers and yellow fruit such as golden apples and peaches and exotic fruit such as the papaw, which together with the dried fruit, crunchy almonds and nuts, sulphurous and glazed notes give the wine a fuller and more interesting bouquet. It is warm on the palate with softness balanced by a pleasant sensation of tannins gleaned from the maceration of the wine on the skins. When sipped it echoes the aromas perceived on the nose with lengthy taste and olfactory persistence. The finale is characterized by an interestingly powerful yet sapid mineral wake, which invites one to quaff." --Importer Tasting Notes
