Tasting Notes

Annata 2019     |     Alcool 12.5% vol

At sight, it shows charming brightness and clarity and a youthful lemon yellow color with greenish reflections.

On the nose
The nose begins with measured intensity, played between very delicate vegetable scents and equally delicate fruity notes (peach and exotic fruit).
With oxygenation and the increase in temperature, the wine becomes more complex, expressing floral aromas (broom and wildflowers), wheat flour, delicate smoky notes and fruity hints that recall ripening peaches and pears. Still, it has a slight citrus note (cedar and bergamot zest) and then again exotic fruit. Everything is expressed with a discreet and never shameless intensity.

On the palate
In the mouth it is dry, with great flavor and good acidity. Both are softened with the temperature of the wine, which acquires both complexity and aroma.
Good persistence and great tidiness in the mouth.

Serving suggestions
An apéritif wine or to pair with firm fish meat, also baked.

Serving temperature
To be served at 12° C.

On the nose
Tropical notes as passion fruit, litchi and pineapple, elderflower and aromatic herbs, very firm at the beginning, becoming refined and elegant on the end.

On the palate
Freshness and sapidity characterised by tropical fruit wich gives charms to the wine.

Very well paired with fish dishes and wild herbs frittata

Annata 2017     |     Alcool 13.0% vol

Bright straw yellow, limpid, with clear green reflections.

Typical aromas of fresh fruit (peach, exotic fruit) reveal citrus notes (yellow grapefruit) and a very pale and appreciable smoky note. Elegant wine, vertical, charming, but not invasive.

Very young, but satisfying and with a beautiful, fresh-savoury structure; flavourful, charming.

Serving suggestions
Aperitif wine, which can well be served with oven cooked or properly grilled noble fish. Wonderful to enjoy with grilled or baked scallops and delicate herb (properly dosed) omelettes, where melissa and mint prevail with a bit of spring onions.

Serving temperature
To serve at 12°C with optimum expression at 15°C (suggested 12°C when serving with right aeration reaching 15°C).
