Winemaker's Notes

Of intensive straw-yellow color; flowery, fruity flavor with a typical touch reminiscent of the characteristic flavor of bitter almonds. On the palate resolutely dry, but thanks to the slight acidity, which distinguishs the wine, it appears always round, full-bodied and velvety.
Accompaniment: perfect with fresh cheese, vegetable omelettes and vegetable or rice stews.

Critical Acclaim

"This full-bodied white exhibits apple pie aromas, with peach and banana flavors and lemon, lime and mineral character. Bright, fruity and racy. Drink now. 3,330 cases made. "
91 Points

"There's a natural freshness to this wine that makes it mouthwatering-crisp apple, ripe peach and a lime zest note that adds pithy green bitterness to the sweet fruit. More a fruity than a toasty style of Friulano, this finishes clean. Serve it with tiny fried bait fish."
