Tasting Notes: A fresh wine with a smooth entrance in the mouth, with good acidity but at the same time velvety.

Notes: The grape harvest is carried out by hand and the grapes then undergo a meticulous selection process. They are then pressed and left to macerate in stainless steel vats. Oak barrels are used for the fermentation and the wine is left for a further 4 months with its lees in the same barrels where frequent stirring is carried out.

Food pairing: Great as an aperitif before a meal. It goes very well with appetizers and snacks, light lunches, and dinners. Try it with fish and dishes containing vegetables.
