Yellow straw color. Aromas of pineapple, pear, and underripe muskmelon with a satiny, vibrant, dryish light body and a seamless, appealing, medium-length slate, alpine herbs, and sea spray finish with no oak flavor. A balanced, mineral-forward Vernaccia that will be a great aperitif or shellfish pairing.
