Bright straw yellow, with elegant greenish reflections.
It is a great wine with a finely harmonious, floral and fruity bouquet, with typical notes reminiscent of bitter almond, pear, wild flowers and acacia.
The taste is soft and velvety, moderately acidic, dry and well structured. The finish, incredibly persistent, is characterised by the typical and unmistakable hint of bitter almond that enhances the typical character of the variety.
It is excellent when paired with S. Daniele raw ham and wonderful with vegetables, in particular with spring vegetables: asparagus, nettle, silene to be used in risottos and omelettes. It also goes very well with crustaceans: cicadas, prawns, scampi and lobsters because it has the right minerality to enhance their flavour.
To be served at a temperature between 16 and 18° C in a wide-bowled glass.
Straw yellow, intensely floral and silky, crisp when young and pulpy over time.
