Bianco delle Venezie I.G.T.
Still White Wine
A still white wine from pure Garganega grape, fine, elegant and lonely in a land of red wines … a Desperate because it couldn’t find its name, and finally we really called it so!
Straw yellow colour with a golden shimmer. Intense aroma, rich with notes of flowers and tropical fruit, especially mango and pineapple. Good structure and acidity. Round in the mouth, savoury and balanced. Besides being a pleasant aperitif, its full flavour pairs well with refined meat and fish appetizers, crudités, aromatic pasta or rice dishes, grilled white meat or fish.
