Winemaker's Notes

Deep straw yellow with  green-gold highlights. Subtle and delicate aromas of balsamic notes and wild flowers create an intricate bouquet. Fresh-tasting, piquant and dynamic, it is well balanced.

Excellent as an aperitif. At table, pair with soups, seafood pastas and Asian cuisine.
