Winemaker's Notes

In the glass, an intense straw-yellow with green-gold tinges. The complex bouquet combines balsamic notes and wild flowers, subtle and delicate. The wine is well balanced, with fresh flavors that are delicate piquant.

Pair with seafood pastas and soups, and a good match with Asian cuisines. Excellent as an aperitif or table wine.
