The aroma offers fine mineral notes and apple, honey and candied lemon peel. These follow on to a palate that is lively yet well-balanced with a fresh acidity, making it very easy to drink. The fruity finish has a slight almond note.
Excellent as aperitif and as accompaniment of hors d'oeuvres and fish.
"The most well-known white wine from Piedmont. Lovely and fresh, minerally and citrussy. A great apéritif wine to drink with friends or with lighter fish dishes."
