The wine is left to refine on noble lees for five months and 2/3 years after bottling.
Color: Bright straw yellow colour with greenish reflections.
Bouquet: On the nose it is intense, revealing its mineral personality deriving from the volcanic Soave Classico soil, together with fruity notes of peach, apricot, yellow plum and medlar.
Flavor: The mouth is firm, full, rich, and perfectly balanced between freshness and smoothness. Long lasting sip with the typical Garganega almond aftertaste.
Pairings: Best served with first courses, like pasta, soup or risotto with fish and vegetables. Ideal also with shellfish and white grilled meat or with fresh and medium aged cheeses, like Grana Padano and Taleggio.
