MALVASIA DI BOSA DOC is a white wine from the Italian island of Sardinia (Sardegna). The DOC dates from 1972. It is one of Sardinia’s most sought after Malvasia-based wines (the ‘Malvasia Sarda’ in this case), especially in its pale golden secco version (Burton Anderson (1990, p292). It comes from west central Sardinia, from ‘along the coast south of Bosa…the often steep Planargia hills with its volcanic soil of calcareous clay and mild climate…concentrated [wines] from low yields,’ (Burton Anderson (1990, p290).
