Gini says: "This wine brings together the best expressions of our vineyards,
100% Garganega, the wine is straw yellow with green-gold reflections in the glass. The nose is intense and fragrant, fresh white flowers including hawthorn, elder, and cherry, together with white peach and tropical fruit. The palate is all this plus blended in an elegant and harmonious way with almond notes and a balanced minerality.

that too often shuts down on palate. Instead, this wine has texture and fruit
bound by tannin and acid to perform in glass and on palate.
