It would have been better with meat. It was a birthday present for my friend.
A Cortese with a nice colour. It has aromas of white flowers. It wasn't at its optimal service temperature, it would have tasted better if so.

- One of Italy's most fashionable whites, it is noted for acute dryness and fresh, flinty acidity.
- This is a bright straw-yellow wine with greenish highlights. It has a full, delicate, elegant bouquet which brings flowers and fresh fruit to mind - mostly lemons, lilies of the valley and green apples. Its palate is attractively young, dry, fresh and well-balanced.
- As an inviting aperitif, it whets the appetite in its pairings with hors-d'oeuvres and fish dishes. It is perfect in summer, but there are no seasonal limitations to the serving of this delightful wine.
- 100% Cortese
