Pithoi Insolia Maggio
Containers called Pithoi were used for fermentation, which gave the wines their particular smell and taste of quality which still endures today.
From the union of the precious Insolia and Chardonnay grapes, a wine of intense perfume has been born. This wine can be optymally copled with delicately flavored dishes of fish, cheese, and meat. In this case, it is recommended to serve it a little cooler, at about 12-14 degrees.
