One of our most sought after wines. It has a caressing nature alongside a unique, complex bouquet. The flavour is lively and fresh.
DOC FRIULI COLLI ORIENTALI
White wine with delicate greenish highlights. The bouquet is decisive recalling tomato leaf, green pepper, sage, mint, white pear, elderflower, papaya and other exotic fruits. On the palate it has a mineral and aromatic character. This is a full-bodied wine with good acidity.
