'Lis' Lis Neris 2017

The “Lis” is a very elegant and complex white wine, produced from international grape types traditionally cultivated in friuli, vinified and aged in French oak barrels. The bouquet is rich and delicate, composed of Mediterranean herbs, a lot a flowers and fruits. The taste is smooth, fresh, dynamic and very persistent: great harmony!
