Langhe Bianco “L’Aura” D.O.C.
“L’Aura” is a white wine from a blending of Chardonnay and Riesling Renano.
Gold in the glass, dressed in shiny jewels.
Warm, charming aromas, an elegant bouquet of crunchy fruits, sweet spices and citrus fruits.
Tense and powerful mouth, the sapidity and persistence of the liquid harmonize everything, closing the curtain triumphantly.
Structure calls structure, the Langhe Bianco “L’Aura” is the ideal companion for fatty or sauced fish such as monkfish, San Pietro or cod but also with a free-range chicken. Keep a glass for the after dinner.
