Alcohol/vol 13%
Straw yellow or light golden, quite bright, with greenish shades. On the nose we perceive the prevalence of fruity notes of pear and apple, in harmony with the vegetable ones of hay, wildflowers and chamomile and to finish the typical hint of toasted almond, unique in this grape variety. In the mouth it is a little bit acidic, round, full-bodied, and what promised on the nose is confirmed by the taste, which identifies its main feature in the final touch of bitter almond. Considered the ideal aperitif in Friuli, especially with raw ham, but it's a wine for any time of the day, from appetizers and canapés before lunch, to dinner. Excellent also with asparagus soup and white meats.

Delicate aromas of spring field flowers and white stone fruit form the nose along with whiffs of chamomile and nut. Reflecting the aromas, the round palate offers ripe Bartlett pear, yellow apple and a hint of grapefruit alongside tangy acidity. A bitter almond note signals the close.
