OFFIDA PASSERINA DOCG

Rustic and robust with an incredible bouquet elegance.

Descendant of the Trebbiano family of vines, the Passerina vine comes from central eastern Italy and has a long history in the Piceno region, a territory which has been known since ancient times.

During the Sixties this cultivation was abandoned, but today the Passerina vine is a centre of interest for producers and connoisseurs.

Rustic and robust, but at the same time capable of expressing an incredible bouquet elegance, it is one of the greatest representatives of wine production in the Marche region and the Piceno territory.

On the nose Passerina reveals floral hints and evident citrus sensations of grapefruit and lemon with fruity notes, in particular pear.  Fresh and gently sapid in the mouth, pleasant and intriguing.

Recommended with: aperitifs, appetizers, crustaceans and seafood salad, legume and cereal soups.
