The color is a brilliant straw yellow and the nose exhibits fresh fruit perfumes of apple and pear, and floral notes of elder and bloom. The taste is fresh and light with good acidity and mineral character due to the volcanic origin of the soil.
Ideal as aperitif, light main courses such as pasta and risotto, shell fish and fish, soups and vegetables.
"Brilliant emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of brazil nuts, creme fraiche, and kiwi and starfruit with a silky, lively, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and an effortless, engaging, medium-length watermelon, yellow apple, and clementine finish. A delicious, artfully balanced soave with a great range of fruit flavors."

"Pale color. Fruity, floral minerally inviting aromas of passion fruit, white grapefruit, spice poached pear, and papaya with a lean, racy, bone-dry medium body and a smooth, complex, long lemon, passion fruit, raw hazelnut, and wet stones finish with no tannins and light oak. From the tantalizing nose full of exotic fruit, citrus and minerality thru to the long, crisp finish, this soave can seamlessly go from cocktail hour thru to vibrantly flavored dishes."
