The wine finishes dry with zesty acidity to maintain freshness and an impressive length.

Straw yellow in the glass, this Vermentino opens with a delicate but persistent nose with citrus fruit aromas and hints of fennel. On the palate, the wine is balanced and well-structured with a refreshing acidity which carries the aromas onto the crisp finish.
