SKU 2397



Tasting Notes:

Color - Pale yellow colour with golden hues. 

Bouquet - Refined aromas of sweet citrus, pineappple, gooseberry and peach, alongside an energizing mineral note and aromatic herb hints that enhance its complexity and elegance. 

Flavor - The palate is juicy with a lively, refreshing acidity. Pineapple and herbs flavors confirm the aromas perceived on the nose. It’s enthralling and invigorating, with a deep, mineral finish. 

Pairings - Perfect with fish soups, shellfish, grilled fish and fish stew. Try it with “aolette del Garda in carpione”, a very traditional, tasty recipe with lake bleaks.

DecanterAmalfi lemon zest, honeysuckle and lemon cream shine on the expressive nose. Creamy and velvety in texture, the palate shows toasty almond, straw and elderberry. A rich style, mineral driven with a very long finish.

Wine EnthusiastDelicately scented, this has light aromas suggesting ripe orchard fruit and a whiff of nut. It's medium bodied, offering yellow-apple, pineapple and tangy citrus flavors before a white-almond close.
