Very strong nose of apricot and harsh fumes, a deep orangey-gold color, but illogically, a light and smooth dessert wine. Dominant notes of dried apricots, with a edge of honey and spice. Recommend pairing with dense cheeses, lighter chocolate desserts, pumpkin, panna cotta, nothing very light and not with fresh fruit.

It isn't a coincidence that in the 500s, the Venetian nobility already preferred to spend their summers in this area, sojourning in the splendid villas perfectly designed by the great architect, Andrea Palladio.
