DESCRIPTION:

Garganega grapes and a tiny share of classic Italian Trebbiano. Harvested from the hilly slopes between Verona and Vicenza. Bright deep yellow in colour, the nose is complex with hints of pear and yellow fruit with notes of quince and a flint and honey finish. The palate is warm, round and balanced with an incredible acidity and minerality.
