Vinificazione

in November wring their grapes with stalk. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out by yeasts used to high levels sugar and low temperatures.

Colour

straw yellow

Scent

it is a persistent, intense, fine, elegant wine, with hints of peach, apricots, dried figs and dates.

Taste

it strikes with its softness and sweetness especially at the beginning, which subsequently fades more and more into a note of great elegance. The balance between acidity and sugary residue is striking in the aftertaste, making it tasty and never cloying

Food pairings

perfect with cheeses that give fatness, with an aromatic and tasty tone such as: pecorino, seasoned parmesan, cheese puddings. Ideal with slightly dry cakes, better if accompanied by caramelized or chocolate creams, or with only cakes of fregolotti, chocolates, chocolate salami. The Cristina wine for its unique characteristics can be combined wonderfully with foie gras. With oysters (matching of concordance) where the minerality of the wine recalls that of the mollusk

8-12°C depending on food pairing
