Tasting Notes

“I am Gaia, not Lucrezia” is a reserve bottling, a selection of 100% organically grown Pecorino grapes with some barrique ageing to add layers of complexity. Golden yellow in color. There are hints of tropical fruit and spice on the nose which continues on to the palate and finish. It pairs well with raw shellfish, seasoned cheeses with jam, and roasted chicken with herbs and spices.
