Note di degustazione
The colour is straw yellow with greenish reflections. With a delicate, elusive but very personal fragrance, with delicate fruity nuances reminiscent of the Golden apple. The taste is sapid and fragrant with an average acidity, with an aftertaste reminiscent of hazelnut. It is a dry aperitif wine, from lean starters of fish and meat, from light soups to raw crustaceans, it also goes well with soft cheeses.
Note di produzione
The white vinification method involves washing the grapes and pressing in a controlled atmosphere. Both techniques have been developed in the company pursuing the aim to avoid the use of exogenous antioxidants and to preserve the varietal characteristics of the grape itself (aromas and antioxidants). The origin of the name, Nosiola, is not certain, it could refer to the finish of the wine with a bitter taste, which recalls the hazelnut or amber color of ripe berries.
