A rare wine indeed, in which its two parent grape varieties, Trebbiano and Aromatic Traminer, find their ethereal expression in an elegant marriage of aromas and flavours that stand out for their pronounced, yet at the same time remarkably graceful, character.
To the eye, the wine displays the qualities of each, offering a straw yellow that is both deep and luminous, while Traminer immediately claims the nose, albeit with discretion: a gorgeous
florality, particularly of springtime, expands harmoniously, as do the notes of tasty fruit, predominantly yellow peach, lychee, and pineapple. While the Traminer is again obvious on the
finish, it is the Trebbiano that infuses the crisp, finely-structured palate.
Rosabianco partners beautifully with vegetarian pastas and risottos with pumpkin, shellfish and lighter meats, as well as with a variety of Asian dishes, even those well-spiced, since their
flavours contrast with and complement the wine’s complex aromatics. Enjoy best at 8-10°C.
