Straw yellow color.
Nose has intense aromas of exotic fruit, yellow flowers, such as mimosa and broom. Among the exotic fruit we can distinguish mango, papaya and pineapple. Even in Lahner there are ideas that can be traced back to hay. In the quality the aromas are very fine and elegant to excite.
Palate is very rich, with a certainly fine creaminess. In balance between hardness and softness, by virtue of the pillars that support the structure: Minerality and acidity. As mentioned in the opening, however, the thickness and the volume of the sip is noteworthy. After swallowing, it releases splendid aromas of exotic fruit and spices.
The Isarco valley is the land of choice for Sylvaner, where, thanks to various factors, which constitute the terroir, it expresses all its potential. As a whole it is the best representation of Sylvaner from the Isarco valley and from the whole of Italy.
It goes well with dishes with asparagus, both as an appetizer to accompany the first, with baked fish, and with different interpretations of chicken. Very good also with crustaceans, both raw and cooked.
