This sexy little Soave out of Italy has a touch of tropicals about it on the nose, together with sniffs of nuttiness and subtle citrus. The palate is quite rich and round with peach and melon flavours, a talcy texture, and a dry, smooth finish. Roast chicken and sage stuffing would be great with this.
