Tasting notes and food pairings
Straw-yellow colour with golden highlights; well-rounded, complex aroma; harmonious blend of yeast and fruitiness. The fine perlage makes it silky, lingering to the palate.
The nose-palate harmony will accompany an entire meal and, of course, it is the perfect aperitif.
