Tasting notes

The color is yellow gold with greenish reflection. The bouquet is very intense and complex, with hints recalling ripe fruits such as peach, black currant, melon and tropical fruits such as banana, pineapple, mango and passion fruit, all inserted in elegance resulting from noble mold. On the palate it is a fresco, full, with an aromatic body and justly sweet. It goes well with spicy gorgonzola or similar cheeses, with goose paté and with dried sweets, tarts. Excellent wine for meditation and meeting.

Production notes

Not every year this wine is produced as production is directly linked to weather conditions. The grapes are harvested as late as possible, usually in late November, early December. It is essential that the bunches are attacked by noble rot and that the night temperature falls below zero.
