Un colore paglierino attraversato da sfumature verdi. Al palato i sentori di melone e frutta candita sono sostenuti da note di mango, kiwi e caprifoglio. La naturale acidità conferisce struttura e freschezza alla complessità del bouquet. 🥝 🌼 🌱 Brilliant yellow straw with olive hues. Lifted tropical melon and candied fruits are supported by intense mango, kiwi and honeysuckle on the palate. The natural acidity provides structure and freshness to the complex array of sweet tropical fruits. #baronemontalto #baronemontaltowine #experiencesicily #whitewine #grapes #sicilia #sicily #wine #vino #winelovers #winetime #instawine #winepassion #winery #winelife #wine🍷#redwine #vinorosso #ilovewine #lovewine #wineaddict #instavino #wineoclock #cheers #winewinewine #winesofinstagram #wineoftheday #cheers

When in Agrigento, you cannot miss the special local goat cheese! Goats here are not just regular goats: they are “girgentane” (from Agrigento), with beautiful spiral horns. Their cheese is special as well (and it is a Slow Food presidium): we tried it in the special reciepe at Nzolia wine bar with other amazing ingredients. #experiencesicily
