Intense straw yellow. The nose is fragrant, elegant and intense with aromas of sweet fruit, pineapple, candied orange, acacia flowers, rose and vanilla. Full and compact on the palate it shows exotic, mineral and persistent flavours with pleasant notes of pear and cream.

The Domaine
Convinced of the winemaking potential inherent in Collio and the Colli Orientali of Friuli, he bucked the trend of the times and started buying vineyards. Their landmark Terre Alte was first produced in 1981 and they have continued to make innovative and consistently high quality wines since. Winemaker Andrea Felluga has embraced stelvin in a characteristically forward looking way. After experimenting with the closure for five years, he felt confident in using the stelvin closure
( Screwcap Saranex liner ) to retain freshness and perfume in his wines.

Food Pairing
Pasta shells with fennel and cream,pasta and pesto and swordfish.
