An elegant, full-bodied white wine, greenish yellow in colour; fresh fruit on the nose with a rich concentrated
palate of honey and ripe apple, and hints of tropical fruit cut by refreshing acidity on the finish.
"The Abbazia di Novacella Sylvaner is a gem from one of my favorite wine regions in very Northern Italy where a very cool climate imparts brilliant acidity and pure, fresh stonefruit beneath its delicate minerality. Sylvaner, I think, is such a greatly underrated grape despite its ability to make brilliant wines. This particular example is a particularly fine example and will pair brilliantly not only with our favorite shellfish but is wonderful to enjoy all on its own."
|A very versatile food wine, it goes well with platters of cold cuts, soups, light first courses, asparagus, pasta and rice dishes, fish, poultry and white meats.
