Winemaker's Notes:

A dry white wine with a pale-yellow color; clean, intense aroma and dry flavor with elegant body and a velvety feel on the palate. Excellent as an aperitif, ideal accompaniment to seafood salads, fish and shellfish-based pasta and rice courses; perfect with white meats and boiled or grilled fish and with souffl├ęs.

Girlan's grapes grow on the rolling hills of the sun-drenched Oltradige region of Italy, where the soil is particularly permeable to water. Situated on ideal altitudes ranging from 400 to 500 meters above sea level, the soil here is enriched with the valuable nutrients necessary for the healthy growth of sun-ripened grapes. Due to its privileged climate, this area is able to produce great wines, a fact first discovered by the Romans. The magnificent climate and distinctive soil types, as well as tradition and savoir-faire, make these wines ideal for the enjoyment of wine lovers.

About Girlan:

Innovation and pioneering spirit led to the foundation of the Girlan Winery in 1923. Thanks to these two characteristics, the first winery of Girlan has always played a leading role and has taken new ways in terms of cultivation and marketing. The Girlan Winery was one of the first wineries to pay producers not just for the quantity delivered, but also for the quality of the grapes. Today, the Girlan Winery with its 240 members produces approx. 15,000 hectoliters of red and 8,000 hectoliters of white wine. Their vineyards are in the north in one of the best white-wine-regions of Italy. It's a North to South valley and it's protected in the North from the Alps. It is open in the South and at an altitude between 1000 and 1550 feet where the temperature ranges widely between day and night.
