Wine is the poetry of the earth and the consolation of man.
From 100% Pigato grapes, vinified on the skins without added yeasts, the Eretico Giallo Valleponci is a balanced white wine, with good structure, and stubbornly linked to its territory. It has an intense golden yellow color and deep aromas of white fruit, Mediterranean scrub, spices and mineral scents that gradually become more intense with aging in the bottle. The savory, soft and enveloping taste persists on the palate with an evident trace of warmth on the finish
Alcohol content: about 13,0%
Serving temperature: never less than 10 °C
Brilliant ruby red color, with garnet reflections that darken with age. The nose is characterized by a predominant balsamic typical of the vine (eucalyptus, camphor and thyme), followed by aromas of small red fruits and hints of licorice and almond blossom. Discreetly tannic, balanced and persistent, it leaves a pleasant spicy note on the palate. It is a well-structured red, which can be drunk already one year after bottling, but which gives its best after at least 3 years.
Serving temperature: 16/18°C
