Fruit of tradition, expression of its origins. Its unmatchable and delicate tartness ranks it as one of the most distinctive and representative wines of the Treviso area, making it a true must-taste for anyone wanting to appreciate the cornucopia of classic local wines. The wine appears straw yellow, with greenish highlights that testify to the wine’s notable crispness. On the nose, ample notes of stylish pear and apple meld into fragrant just-mown hay. In the mouth, a very forceful acidic grip predominates over the other components, combining with the palate's elegant leanness and full-flavoured sapidity to ensure a truly nonpareil ageability. The pleasureableness and overall cleanness of the palate make this an ideal aperitif wine and a delicious companion to a wide range of freshwater fish dishes, summertime savoury pies, and goat and ewe’s milk cheeses
