Advice

Tasting notes
It is a white wine with golden reflections, presenting a complex aromatic range which is declined in scents of violets, in more violent aromas of stone fruits such as apricot, vine peach, or even acacia flowers, spices and toasted dried fruits.
Food and wine pairings
It is superb as an aperitif and goes wonderfully with foie gras or pan-fried scallops.
