Winemaker's Notes

Straw yellow color with golden tints. Classic aromas of sauvignon, peppers, tomato leaf with varied sweet, enveloping, persistent characteristics. Fresh, lively, highly pleasurable with optimal persistence.

Ideal as an aperitif, great with soups, cold cuts and savory dishes. A very interesting match with eastern cuisine.
