The nose is rich with floral notes, hints of ripe peaches and herbs.
The palate lush with flavors of ripe pears, almonds and hints of thyme balanced by great acidity and volcanic minerality.
This wine will pair well with White Fish, Margherita Pizza, Seafood, Lighter Pasta Dishes and Fresh Cheeses.

Reviewer: July Lam from Daily city  
One of the best white Italian wines I have ever had, loved its fruity aromas and its minerality. I had it with a vegetarian dinner and it was fantastic!
