Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT
The grapes that give rise to Mandolaia are grown in mountain vineyards and left to dry naturally on the vine, exploiting the natural temperature variations and the autumn cold.
With a full and bright straw colour with tones of antique gold, Mandolaia has an intense aroma full of tropical sensations – especially pineapple – and candied fruit, followed by light and delicate notes of dried herbs such as thyme and sage that make its nose full, aromatic and persistent. Its palate is immediately creamy with soft sensations that evoke the flavour of peaches and apricots in syrup. Its flavour profile is rendered lively and fragrant thanks to its richness, giving this wine elegance and a great balance.
