Straw color with golden reflections

Colli di Salerno Passito Passion

This estate-bottled Passito is the result of the harvest of the best bunches of Falanghina (Bianca Zita) and Biancolella grapes. A patient work by natural drying and by a slow fermentation in small oak barrels, give this wine an intense aroma with a velvety sweet taste. Straw-colored with golden glow, captivating and distinct taste, with fresh notes of pine needles and hints of Mediterranean scrub, pear with syrup and withered flowers.
The taste is soft, with a sweet taste not too pronounced, enlivened by a slight acidity.
