Malvasia Passito ‘Vigna del Volta’ – DESSERT WINE, biodynamic wine, sweet wine from dried grapes, appassimento, rich and full with notes of caramel and dried apricot. A unique wine made from a unique grape, the Malvasia di Candida Aromatica which gives a unique flavour and aroma to dessert wine. It also ages very well and has good acidity so the balance is there between intense dried fruits and sweetness and a taught citrus note. Outstanding wine and an old vintage showing all the wines great potential.

La Stoppa are an ancient wine estate in Val Trebbiola, not far from the River Trebbia, in the province of Piacenza.

100 years ago, the then owner Ageno, a lawyer of some repute planted Bordeaux varieties and named them after the more illustrious wines of that region, Bordo, Bordo Bianco and Pino. In the 70s the estate was taken over by the Pantaleoni Family and now is run by Elena Pantaleoni according to biodynamic principles. The vines have been replanted and they now produce wines from local varieties such as Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, Barbera and Bonarda, as well as the wines from their ancient vines of Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Semillon. The commitment to natural production, minimal work in the cellar and the excellent terroir yield wines of character, freshness and style which have something of the Bordeaux about them even with the Italian varieties. Perhaps, the 'Terroir' remembers its past and transfuses the history of this magnificent estate into every grape!
