Tasting notes

Luca Maroni writes …
Sensations: a white of sweetness of fruit and of suademente exceptional spices. 

Its transformation is of excellent oenological sharpness: a varietal of banana and limpid grape pulp in stainless steel, with a set of vanilla-flavored oak balms of highly calibrated and floral fragrance, expressive and aromatic. 

Then a great excerpt, an enveloping, powerful, very harmonious gustatory softness. A great wine.

Pairings

The high alcohol content and the spicy notes make it ideal when matched with seasoned cheeses like Castelmagno but also with smoked salmon and spicy white meats.

Service temperature: 14/16 °C
