“Stella Flora” is a Pecorino, Passerina, Trebbiano and Malvasia blend that reveals attractive old gold nuances thanks to the unusual cellar technique combining contact with the skins and a minimal addition of sulphur dioxide.
This well-structured wine whispers mandarin, bitter orange and hints of aromatic herbs on the nose; a dry, full-bodied wine whose palate lives up to expectations, with lavish aromas and a good finish. Recommended with poultry, boiled meats, fish and cheese; also as an aperitif.
Serve either chilled or at room temperature.
