The judgment of the sommelier
Medium intensity straw-yellow in colour, good luminosity. Primarily on the nose are floral fragrances, especially acacia and linden flowers; notes of fruit in succession, a light peach note first, closing with aromatic herbs from the Mediterranean. In the mouth it expresses itself coherently, a remarkable flavour accompanied by a nice freshness that leaves the palate extremely clean. An almonds aroma is perceived as an olfactory aftertaste. A balanced and pleasantly smooth sip. A ready wine, to be matched with traditional local dishes like “pansotti” with walnut sauce or “cappon magro”. Other possible matches could be a simple aromatic herb risotto or a fish main course, like common bass baked in foil with salt potatoes.
