A white blend made up of 60% Greco and the rest Fiano. The winemaking has been kept simple to retain the natural beauty in the grapes. Fresh, floral, clean, bright, jubey, a hint candied. The palate has nice flesh, clean finishing with just a hint of lees and bitterness. This is a lovely wine that is drinkable now. Pair with burrata or mozzarella.
