Unusual. A structured white wine, aged in barrique, that blossoms into a range of subtleties, all to be discovered!
It is at its best when paired with bold-flavored dishes of fish and meat, as well as soups, pasta and risottos and medium-aged cheeses.

The refinement is completing in the months following bottling.
