Tenuta San Pietro - Gavi DOCG 2015

Tenuta San Pietro

This biodynamic wine is bright, pale yellow in the glass offering aromas of minerals, flowers and fresh stone fruits. Excellent structure and balance creating a certain elegance of fruit, acidity, freshness and a lingering finish. Excellent as an aperitif, but matches well with oysters, shellfish, sushi and lighter pasta dishes.

Serving Temperature: 8-10C / 46-50°F
