Description:

Authentic, full-bosied white quality wine. Deep intense straw yellow with golden tears. Wide mineral nose attack full of white stone fruit, exotic notes of pineapple and citrus, fennel seed and vanilla. Wonderfully balanced flavour with a playful game between acidity, alcohol and extremely fine touch of wood. Almost unctuous in the very long mineral finish with pointed citrus bitter. Pairs very well with rich white fish and shellfish in creamy sauces with fresh herbs like dill and chives. Delicious with braised fennel and pan-fried asparagus. Goes also very well with slow matured hard cheeses. Till 5 years best decant in advance. Serving temperature: 12°C.
