The nature and the complexity of this native vine, are enhanced in this bottle. The fresh herbaceous flavors, that are typicals of Erbaluce, bind to each other, reaching an unusual smoothness for this wine. You can drink it alone as well, as the only protagonist of the convivial moment, but it gives its best, with slightly refined white meat dishes or fish. “Essenthia” loves contrasts and, without overpowering, it may help “research cuisine".
