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 soufflés.

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.

Critical Acclaim

"Pretty mango and honey aromas and flavors, with just a hint of spicy toasted almond character, follow through to a full body, offering good fruit and fresh acidity. Drink now."
