Light nose with a hint of sour berries. thin and light body. Quite dry with a salty finish with subtle touches of camomile. Hints of sour berries especially in the aftertaste. A little sour overall but still a nice fruity white.
A fresh, fruity and floral bouquet of musk with a hint of ripe apple fill the nose. This wine is soft and well-balanced with an elegant, lingering finish of plums and bitter almonds.
According to legend, a clergyman instructed his steward to shout the word “est” - meaning “it is” in Latin - to signify an area producing high-quality wines along their journey. While traveling through Montefiascone, where this wine is produced, the steward found a wine that was so outstanding, he shouted three times, “Est! Est!! Est!!!” A vibrant white showcasing fresh aromas of musk and hawthorn blossom interlaced with hints of ripe apples. Dry in style, it is refined with a balanced palate and an elegant finish of stone fruit and raw almonds.
