Fresh, tropical fruit and pineapple with hints of citrus followed by a bright acidity on the palate that makes for a refreshing aperitif styled wine.

This versatile wine is perfect on its own, but also works well as an excellent pairing with roasted duck, roast pork with lemon gremolata or Blue cheese gnocchi.
