color: granet-red with violet hues, aroma: berry aromas, with nuances of violets, taste: silky with gentle tannin; fullbodied and persistent
Brilliant straw yellow colour with a light green shimmer. Clean, quite pronounced varietal aroma with refined fruity notes (peach, pear). Dry, medium bodied, well balanced, grapey flavour with a crisp, refreshing finish and persistent aftertaste. The lively acidity is well integrated in the wine's fruit structure.
Color: clear pale yellow with a slight greenish shimmer. Smell: On the nose this classic Pinot Bianco scores with crisp notes of pear mingling with aromas of raspberry and lime, plus a touch of camomile and lemon grass to round off the composition. Taste: Body and balance sum up the Pinot Bianco, which intrigues the palate with the fruit of the pear and quince aromas combined with a salty minerality. The wine tickles the tongue and goes on to deliver a persistent aftertaste.
color: pale yellow; aroma: light aromatic with a gentle fragrance of tropical fruits; taste: dry, medium bodied, with a fruity well balanced acidity
With a very fruity nose, this wine has fine, delicate peach and apricot nuances. Its high acidity makes it very fresh on the palate; its unobtrusive minerality makes for a lively finish.
