Blend of Pecorino, Passerina and Trebbiano. All grapes are grown organically, without any systemic fungicides, pesticides or herbicides. Fermented in 100% stainless steel. The vineyard is trained as spur pruned cordon, in the towns of Offida and Acquaviva Picena, in Ascoli Piceno province at 250-300 metres above sea level.

Tasting notes: Brilliant, pale yellow with green hues, this wine has an enticing tropical-fruit driven nose. Notes of honeysuckle, lychee, peach pit, spearmint, fresh almonds and a touch of white pepper are evident on the nose. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, with balanced alcohol and acid. The weight of the wine is plump, fresh and viscous, with a caressing mouthfeel. Creamy lychee, almonds and crushed rock fill the mouth and linger on a medium to long finish. Delicious, fun and fruity, enjoy now with grilled chicken or a l’aperitif with a variety hors d’oeuvres, including spicy shrimp, sashimi or prosciutto.
