Coda di Volpe Settepietre Campania IGT

16,00

A bright golden yellow colour with a delicate scent of tropical fruits and flowers. The taste is a combination between a soft minerality, lively acidity and the presence of roasted hazelnuts and almonds, particularly in the aftertaste.
Its full fresh taste is very suitable as an aperitif, but also combines well with rich fish dishes, sea fruit, white meats and various types of salads and fresh cheeses.
