Professional Wine Reviews for Principe Pallavicini Stillato 2016

Deep yellow-gold. Orange oil and gingery oak spices complicate ripe peach, mango salad and saffron on the high-toned nose. Pliant and nicely concentrated, showing a rich, luscious and almost oily texture to its flavors of lemon curd, tropical citrus fruits and sweet spices. Conveys an impression of solid extract and finishes with outstanding length and multilayered complexity. Very rich, long and suave, this wine showcases just how great the Malvasia del Lazio (aka. Malvasia Puntinata) cultivar can be (it’s official name is Malvasia del Lazio, but is not to be confused with Malvasia Bianca di Candia, another Lazio Malvasia variety). This strikes me as being one of the better recent vintages of Stillato, but there have been many exceptional bottles of this wine, one of Italy’s top dozen or so best sweet wines of the last two decades.

Winery Principe Pallavicini

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
