ABOUT THE WINE:  The grapes come from the “Le Creete” vineyard which is quite old, around 30 – 40 years old, where the soil has a high content of white clay. This characteristic gives to the wine a unique elegance and minerality. In Veronese dialect “creete” in Italan means “creta” which is clay.

TASTING NOTES:  Warm, golden, intense straw-yellow colour.  Exotic hints of pineapple and grapefruit with a savory trace.  On the palate, the dominate fleshy texture is full bodied & persistent with good minerality.

FOOD PAIRINGS:  Marine and fresh water fish emphasize the features of the wine.  It goes very well with first courses of octopus, pasta or rice, it also provides pleasurable sensations when consumed with strongly flavoured or seasoned cheeses.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - James Suckling:
"Aromas of lychee, ripe pineapple and red peach, turning to lime peel and minerals on the medium-bodied palate with a hint of the sweeter fruit creeping back in at the end. Tasty. Drink now." (Jul 2023)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"Elderflower, tropical fruit and citrus aromas mingle with a whiff of crushed tomato vine. The bright, tangy palate offers white peach, gooseberry and grapefruit before a bitter almond finish."

90 Points - Wine Spectator

"A creamy, light- to medium bodied white, with an intriguing blend of grapefruit, crunchy white peach, lentil and Thai basil layered with petrol and ground white pepper. Juicy, lingering finish. Drink now. 6,600 cases made, 300 cases imported."
