TASTING NOTES: Its robe is light yellow. Its fruity and floral nose will seduce you. The palate is full-bodied
Pinot with heady, supple and harmonious fruit. A crisp finish. A wine to be enjoyed and shared.
FOOD & WINE PAIRING: Grilled calamari are sufficiently rich and perfectly perfumed by the grill to respond
ideally to the Reserve’s deliciously fruity finish. The candied fruit tones coat the grilled calamari, offering all
its richness and savour to the sole-ingredient dish, dressing up its rustic side.
