Tasting notes and table companions
Straw-yellow colour with brilliant golden highlights. Warm, well-rounded aroma; typical fruity scent reminiscent of apple. Round and full to the palate, very long-lasting and complex.
Structured wine, particularly suitable to match appetizers made with fish or meat and pasta dishes in general; also ideal with smoked ham and cheeses.
