'Daniele' Illuminati 2018

The Daniele di Illuminati is a white wine obtained from Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Passerina and Chardonnay grapes, which ages for 12 months in large barrels and presents itself at the sight of an elegant golden straw-yellow color. It expresses fruity notes of yellow plum and hay on the nose, while the taste is soft and enveloping, with good finesse and a well-persistent harmony.

Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied white wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
