Winery Notes:
One of Italy’s most important white grapes grown primarily in the Marche region of Italy. It produces powerful white wines able to age over 10 years. Stylistically the wines are between Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc.

Pale straw yellow with green hues – ample and persistent bouquet with hints of lime, white flowers, citrus, peach, white summer fruits and a mineral note
