Dry, crisp and medium bodied white wine, bright straw yellow colour. The wine rested four months on its fermentation lees to assume more length, character and longevity. Very intense on the nose with citrus fruit, floral and herbal notes. Fresh citrus flavours, orange blossom, thyme, hints of kiwi and grapefruit. Refreshing and savoury with a saline hint: the grapes are sourced from Maremma, close to the Mediterranean sea. Good firm style when released, will be enjoyable for up to four years from harvest.
Food Pairings: Seafood and fish.
