This wine is made from Glera, Veradiso and Pino Bianco grapes grown on the steep hills of the Bisol Vineyards. The first two varieties enjoy an ideal habitat in the clay-laden earth with subsoil of marine sandstone known as “crede” that is common to this part of the countryside. This type of terrain is particular and beneficial to the grapes, which do not suffer from aridity during critical periods but instead become notably enriched with noble acids, varietal aromas and fruitiness.

Dry Extract: 17.5g/L
The color is a brilliant, light straw yellow with nuances of green, while perlage features a myriad of minute and persistent bubbles. The bouquet of wildflowers is suitably intense, fresh and elegant and emanates an extremely agreeable fruitiness. The flavor reflects the fruity bouquet with its scents of apples and pears and the overall harmony is completed by a rich and fine sapidity.
- Serving Suggestions: Serve at a temperature of 8 C (46 F) in a crystal goblet.

”Wild flower, ripe orchard fruit and a whiff of aromatic herb are some of the scents you’ll find on this. The foaming linear palate doles out apple, pear, lime and a hint of lemon drop alongside fresh acidity and a soft mousse.”
