I hope you’re all doing okay! We’ve been so busy with our daughter going back to school it’s definitely been a shock to the system having to wake up super early! It has been lovely getting to relax with family over the weekends though and we have been enjoying a glass of wine together.
Today I’m writing about Malvirá Trueve. You may have seen that I have partnered with an Online Wine Shop. I’ve learned a great deal about different wines since earlier on this year, it’s actually fascinating finding out how it’s made and where it comes from. The best bit is getting to sample the wines and this one is very nice.
We shared this with some of our family when they visited us and we served it with some picky snacks. It’s a little colder outside now but this would be so lovely to enjoy during the hotter months, perfectly chilled to share with friends or to serve with food for an alfresco dinner.
An interesting fact about Malvirà Treuve – “Treuve” (“Tre uve”) means three grapes – which is where this wine gets its name from. It is a refreshing white wine made with three different types of grapes. 40% Chardonnay, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Arneis.
The winery is in a place called Roero which is within the Piedmont area in Italy. Read more about Piedmont here. Malvirà is one of the most influential wine producers in Roero and have innovative ways of working. They are organic certified, carbon neutral with their winery constructed deep underground with geothermal heating and cooling.
What does it taste like?
I would say it is quite a dry wine, it smells very fruity once it’s in the glass and also has a slightly fruity after taste. It reminds me of sun shiny summer days. The high acidity comes from the grapes that have grown in the foothills of the Alps.
The wine is a pale yellow colour and to me tastes best when it’s super cold. It is 12.5% AVB and available for £19.95 from Independent Wine.
