Grillo 100%

Note al gusto

Al naso è fruttato e floreale, pesca bianca, mango e soprattutto pompelmo, i fiori sono bianchi come la zagara e i fiori di sambuco gialli come quelli della ginestra.

Al palato le note caratteristiche del grillo sono la sapidità e la mineralità, con un sentore di alga. Vino di buon corpo tenuto bene dall’ottima freschezza.

The birth of Venus

Aphor, denotes the foam from which, it is said, the divinity was born from the sea.

A scenario that is translated onto the label, showing us on the one hand the sea itself, which in its finish becomes a producer of “fruitful” foam, on the other hand the goddess, elegant and statuesque in her beauty and the result of that foam.
