DOC FCO Bianco “VANESSA”

With good structure and acidity, when young it has a floral and fruity aroma. When aged, this wine takes on a fragrance that evokes bread crusts and aromatic herbs. It is composed of at least 50% Pinot Bianco; the remainder is made up of Friuliano and Ribolla Gialla in variable percentages.

Partial ageing in oak barrels for Pinot Bianco and Friuliano gives this wine perfect body and elegance.
