IGT Bianco Forasacco - Le Masse
Notes of peach, tea, and tropical fruits invite you to taste this intense straw yellow blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Gris (or Pinot Grigio) that have been grown on the Estate since the 1980s. A wine of great concentration and freshness, thanks to the maceration on noble dregs followed by stainless steel aging, that marvel the senses on its own or as an accompaniment to food.
