Description:

This unconventional, intriguing and sophisticated wine is the result of the research path developed around our signature blend: Inzolia / Chardonnay (born in 1991 with Maria Costanza White Wine), to reveal new interpretations.

Following this quest we wanted to keep together two elements : to show an innovative character, in the sign of t search of excellence, as a result of the cultivation techniques and to experiment new path in the interpretation of both the blend and the winemaking method, a sign of a deep knowledge of our terroir.

SENSORY PROFILE

A beautiful straw yellow color with barely perceptible amber reflections, to highlight a modern style that wants to preserve the aromatic integrity of the grapes, deliberately limiting oxidative expressions. Wide, rich nose with evident tropical notes: recognizable hints of ripe pineapple, papaya, mango and candied orange. The notes of hay, peppermint and nettle are well balanced. In the mouth is structured, round and fresh. Persistent and fragrant, it is supported by a pleasant flavor.
