Firriato
Lavish, elegant and austere. It is a hallmark wine embodying power and aristocratic smoothness. A perfect balance of acidity and freshness, with an endless wealth of minerality and saltiness. Special, unique and unrivalled.
Intense straw-yellow with green flecks.
The enchanting intensity of its aromas clearly develops as it meets the nose with hints of yellow wild broom and acacia flowers, combined with fruity notes of white-fleshed fruit, apples and ripe peaches, not forgetting the nuances of aromatic herbs and seaweed. Gentle and unrelenting, it glows with elegance and body. Pure and aristocratic, it stands out amongst the great white wines produced in high-altitude vineyards.
The charm of its minerality is unrivalled. Wonderful for its simplicity of style, distinguished by power and rotundity. The mouthfilling roundness of its imposing structure is a distinctive trait, making it the volcano’s archetypal wine.
