The wine is a refined and exclusive interpretation of the Biancolella grape produced on volcanic land cooled by the sea breeze. It has a bright straw yellow color, with seductive floral notes of acacia and citrus, tropical fruit, grapefruit and pear, wrapped in a subtle mineral texture.
In the mouth it is pleasantly dynamic, fresh, creamy, savory, with an important texture and perfect balance.
