One of the wines that come from the heart of Emanuele, the one he wants to distinguish himself for. He avoids the obstacles of its varietal, which releases a high alcohol content even in cooler vintages, thanks to acidity preservation arising from northern wines and taking great care of the grapes aromatic freshness, by collecting and keeping the grapes cold before the fermentation. Like a lash in the beginning, round mouth-feel, lasting tasty personality, together with a bouquet of herbs, aniseed and peach. A great white wine.
