A relatively little known grape in this country, it is among Italy's best whites. A roundness that accompanies food well, not as astringent as some better known whites from Italy. A real price/value winner!
Color - Intense straw yellow color with a golden shimmer.Bouquet - Aromatic with scents of ripe pears, apricots, apples, fern and mint.Taste - Harmonious, with a lively acidity and mineral structure typical of the Greco grape, with soft balsamic notes on the finish.
