Description
During the 80s and 90s of the last century, a winemaker from Piave lands wanted to retrace, in spring, to the Raboso produced in the previous autumn a part of wine obtained from the same carefully selected grapes and left to dry for several months on racks in rooms properly ventilated. The wine obtained with the addition of the passito had acquired body, structure and personality, losing its sometimes-aggressive angularity to acquire roundness and elegance. The Malanotte del Piave Docg is the maximum expression of Raboso del Piave and its territory: austere wine, full bodied and very fragrant. The name Malanotte evokes the small medieval village situated in Tezze di Piave (Vazzola) in the Treviso area.
