Fruity nose with sliced pears, lemon drops and white flowers, evolving to some mineral restraint on the palate. It’s medium-bodied, with surprisingly soft, fine bubbles. Relatively dry. Sustainable. Drink now.
This wine is produced after a selection of the best grapes in the sweet hills of San Pietro di Barbozza producing area, where the grapes are strictly hand-picked.
Its perlage is fine and elegant and its colour is brilliant pale straw yellow. Fruity notes together with a floral bouquet, typical of Prosecco, complete the flavour, that is delicate, dry but harmonious, so that you can remember it after the first taste.
