Strong wind, poor volcanic soil made of pumice-stone and obsidian are the extreme conditions loved by Biancolella, that reciprocate with incredible generosity.
Intense nose of white flowers and spices, with hints of sage and gorse.
Ample palate, good acidity and great mineral finish. Perfect companion for seafood either grilled or raw like seared tuna and swordfish carpaccio. Best served at 50°-53° F.
