Our Manzoni has a straw-colored shade with a bright and fine, fair shimmer; it is crystal-clear and has an excellent consistence. The first impression in the nose is of an intense fruitiness and floridness and it has broad opening to exotic fruit, citrus fruit and fair flowers. At the beginning one can notice immediately green apple, pineapple, kiwi and passion fruit - with a pleasant perfume of elderflowers; later one can observe also herbal impressions like wild mint, sage and geranium-blossom. At the end there is an enjoyable shade of fire-stone and wet sea-sand.
In the mouth it is rich and pleasantly balanced with beautiful fresh and in a subtle way salty perceptions as well as a soft and warm background: its excellent structure accompanies and sustains the impression in mouth and nose persistently and therefore one can enjoy a long, fresh and intensively fruity finish.
This is a wine of great eno-gastronomic softness and consequently it can enrich various kinds of dishes in a wonderful way: “sweet” kinds of ham like Parma-ham or San Daniele-ham, Spaghetti with mussels, Risotto with sea-food, sole, fresh cow-milk cheese, sheep- and goat-milk cheese.
