'Torricella' Ricasoli 2019

"Torricella" is a Tuscan white wine born from an international blend of Chardonnay, aged in wood, and Sauvignon, aged in steel. The sip combines the freshness and the pleasantness of the fruit with the softness and roundness due to the passage in wood. The nose is an exotic mix of yellow fruit and citrus, with light vanilla accents

To enjoy it at its best

Serving temp.
8°-10°C
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
