Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Pale lemon with pronounced aromas of stone and tropical fruits. On the palate flavors of apple, melon and citrus zest, crisp with lively vibrant acidity and mineral notes. Medium finish ending with a spicy flinty character. Drink now, wine best when young. Tasting Sample!

Tart apple, lemon, honey, slate and hints of dried apricot. Good acidity and balance.

Lovely acidity. Much more character than a typical Gavi. Almost reminds me of a cross between a Vouvray and a Greco di Tufo. Yellow and golden fruits.

Intense, fresh, with aromas of pineapple and green apple. Perfect with my yellowfin tuna.
