Fresh and lively with a pungent fragrance of passion fruit, gooseberry and elderflower. On the palate it is crisp and full flavoured with a long finish.
Single vineyard, 100% Garganega. Golden yellow with intense, concentrated perfumes that follow through to the palate. Aromas of almond essence and honey, an elegant and beautifully balanced palate, the long finish has a light mineral edge.
Complex and layered with nectarine, apricot and lime on the nose. The palate is balanced and fresh, with great natural acidity, intense fruit and well-integrated oak. Comparable to the best Burgundian Chardonnays, a truly exceptional wine.
