Winemaker's Notes

Amber-shot yellow color with light, coppery tinges. A delicate and elegant structure on the nose, with a wide range of clearly discernable flowery notes. Its supple structure is sustained by a distinct tangy freshness. Delicate, lingering hints of white-fleshed fruit in the mouth.

Best paired with delicate dishes – perfect with fish starters, pasta or rice dishes.
