GARGANEGA IGT

Classic

 

The Garganega grape has found  its ideal land  and climate in the province of Verona, where it expresses its full potential.  The scent reminds us of fresh newly grown white field flowers,  accompanied by balsamic notes.  The taste has the elegance typical for the vineyard.
