Tasting notes and table companions
Straw-yellow colour with golden highlights. Fruity, full-bodied, extremely varietal aroma. Soft, balanced, lingering taste.
This is a well-built wine, which can be served with strongly-flavoured or smoked meat or fish and is fine with strongly-flavoured first courses too.
