fruity, intensive wine with body, velvety full-ness and characteristic tannic structure.
A full-bodied, harmonious wine with touches of clove and roses; persistent on the finish.
A very special wine. Once tasted, never forgotten - so ple - asing is its aromatic richness and strength. Fine spices, cloves and the gentle fragrance of roses characterise and emphasise the traits and the overall elegance of this im - pressive wine. It is here, on the hills between Appiano and Termeno, that the Gewürztraminer grape originated. The wine is an ideal accompaniment to fish dishes, especially crustaceans, lobster and crab, or to foie gras and other pâtès. Yet it is also a fine wine for enjoying on its own.
A fine, intense aroma supported by a full but at the same time, harmonious body are characteristics of this grape varietal. "Nouvelle cuisine" offers many more opportunities to enhance the characteristics of this wine, or we suggest the Gewürztraminer with spicy Asian food.
