Life of wine: it is a wine that should be consumed young but there is no lack of exciting results even after 5/10 years of aging.
Type of bottle: Bordeaux bottle in cartons of 6 bottles.
The color is pale straw yellow with greenish reflection. Its bouquet is very intense, typically varietal perfume (scent of elderflower, fig, tomato-blossom) with delicate fruity nuances reminiscent of peach, apricot and blackcurrant. There is excellent nose-palate correspondence. It is an exceptionally fine white wine that goes very well with appetizers, crustaceans and fish in general, but does not disdain being offered as an aperitif.
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).
