★ Good Wine “A very handsome bottle design. Light lemon colour in the glass. Aromas of lemon rind, grapefruit, white flower, basil and mint. Tangy and bitter fresh on the palate, full of lemon oils, white pear, hints of blossom and herbs. A rounded finish that balances the line between sweet citrus and a bitter bite, as do the greatest Italian cocktails.“
Varietal Falanghina with 13.0% abv. Handily there is a QR code on the back label giving you further info about the wine. It looks like there’s some info on the green-conscious decisions the company The Winevisionary Group has made (albeit small steps) and more info on the wine and the range, which is called Deco. The wine is vegan.
Grown in: Campania, ITALY.
While on honeymoon, most of the bottle went along my first attempt to mimick the local dish Spaghetti Alla Narano (courgette with pasta, butter and Provolone del Monaco DOP cheese). The pairing was excellent. It would also work well with all sorts of fish.
