Torre a Oriente Falanghina Biancuzita 2014
At the first sight it appears clear, yellow-colored with amber glares. Nose shows a high complexity, with light notes of honey, hawthorn and ripe white fruit, that do not cover that fruity taste typical of this grape variety. Taste highlights that a good degree of acidity is preserved, while structure and balance create a nose-palate symmetry, by confirming olfactory prerequisites.
