 WINE DESCRIPTION

The growing demand for aromatic white wines has influenced growers to plant more of the international premium varietals. Although Trentino regional white wines are sometimes considered light by international standards, the best of them have an unexpected propensity to age.

TASTING NOTES

Straw yellow color with green highlights. The nose is clean, delicate, with hints of acacia flowers, honey and pear. The sip is dry, fresh, fruity with an enjoyable acidic edge and a pleasant finish of flower and exotic fruit that recall the natural fragrances of the variety.

FOOD PAIRING

Excellent aperitif; ideal with delicate soups, vegetable risottos, and seafood courses.
