The wine has a pale straw color with matching highlights while demonstrating a very fine and persistent perlage. The nose reveals classic aromas of bread crust as well as unique mineral notes of flint. As the wine acclimates to the glass, the character of the cuvée emerges, conveying yellow fruit, currant, delicate wisteria, and slightly roasted hazelnuts from Piedmont. The palate is crisp, savory, with a good backbone.
It is recommended to go against the grain with this one, combining it with main courses, preferably raw meats, tempura, seafood, and vegetables with intense flavor. White truffle and aged cheeses are always welcome. Serve at 4-6°C
