The unique white Nosiola grape is native to Trentino and finds its true home on the hillsides of Pressano and the Cembra Valley. In its historic production area on the marlrich soils of Pressano, Nosiola develops a unique aroma and structure. Pale yellow in colour with pastel green tints, it exudes floral suggestions of rose petals, lychee and jasmine, with a curious note of hazelnut. It is full and persistent on the palate, with just the right acidity.
