Colle Asio

Our interpretation of a widespread international grape. The short passage in french oak barriques makes this wine elegant and lasting. Its name takes ispiration from the Subasio Montain whose fresh winds convey more intensity to the typical mineral and fruity aromas such as honey, peach and violet.

Food Pairing...
Food Pairing
The Viognier grape conveys elegance. I suggest it with white truffle, fish, refined cheese. It's for connoisseurs. Wonderful fresh with appetizer. Fantastic pairing with meat terrine, white meat, galantina, but also with smoken salmon, quiche or cream cheese flan, like ricotta served with mashed pears.
