ELEGANZA, elegance is in short summary the philosophy behind this wine, one of the first white grapes planted more than 35 years ago in Agricola Colle Belvedere. Straw yellow color, the nose recalls intense aromas of acacia flowers, chamomile and white fruit, with pleasant citrus and mineral hints. In the mouth it is fresh, savory and satisfying. A perfect wine to accompany lunches and dinners with friends, thanks to its strong personality and excellent structure.
