Bianco Terre Aquilane “Lucì” igt

The Bianco Terre Aquilane Lucì is made from a small vineyard of Trebbiano grapes, located next to the Montepulciano vineyard and by a short maceration period in its own skins.

This golden wine, with its sometimes subtle, sometimes intense boquet of white flowers, features great sapidity and body.
It pairs perfectly with first courses of pasta with a white meat ragù sauce, mushrooms and legume soups, soft cheeses and fish.
