Blend of free-run juice and lightly pressed must. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations carried out in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. Fining on lees. Clarification through cold and light filtering.
The wine is pale yellow with light green reflections. To the nose it presents an aromatic pallet beginning with a distinctive note of pear which evolves into banana and exotic fruits. Then a final bouquet of white flowers mainly jasmine and lily emerges. In the mouth an initial taste of almond gives way to the floral nature of this wine. The aroma of white flowers settles around the palate leaving a feeling of freshness and a taste of lime with notes of wild flowers.
This wine matches beautifully with light dishes of white meat in sauce, most Neapolitan dishes including fried vegetables and fishes. Great as an aperitif wine.
