Questo vino ha un colore giallo paglierino con riflessi verde. Il profumo è ricco di agrumi come il pompelmo e delicati fiori d'arancio. I frutti esotici aiutano a bilanciare l'acidità vivace, la struttura e dando un bel finale al vino. 🍊 🍋 🌸 This wine has a straw yellow color with light green highlights. The bouquet is full of citrus fruits like grapefruit as well as delicate orange flowers. The exotic fruits help balance out the lively acidity, giving a nice structure and finish to the wine. #baronemontalto #acquerello #grillo #sauvignon #grapes #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #siciliadascoprire #winelovers #winepassion #winery #winelife
