Look: A beautiful golden yellow with deep amber color and straw yellow shades. Colours which are suggesting the wine is moving from his maturity to its aged stage.

 

Smell: propolis, honey, orange, orange peel, flint, pear, sugarcane, quince apple.

Palate: good minerality and sourness which are playing a double game in the palate, minerality is the first feeling to touch the tongue while sourness follows just a few seconds after.

This is a medium body white wine with a palate tending on the hard section on the tongue. perfect for food pairing but not an easy wine for novice people so better save it for passionate and connoisseurs.

Food match: Hard or semi-hard cheeses, wholemeal bread with pancetta and rosemary leaves. Bake potatoes cocottes with anchovies and raclette cheese or quails wrapped in pancetta sage and grilled cheese. For who knows them a serve of Valtellina’s Pizzoccheri served as per tradition.
