Ramandolo - La Roncaia - Dolce white wine
Why we like it:
An enchanting amber yellow, a captivating aroma of candied fruit and chestnut honey, a smooth, velvety, softly tannic palate in which to lose oneself. This is Ramandolo. This DOCG wine is made from Verduzzo Friulano grapes grown on the Ramandolo hills. The grapes are late-harvested (end of October) and then undergo a skilled drying process. Aged in oak barriques for over 12 months
Appearance: amber yellow.
Nose: very intense, wide and complex, with suggestive essences of dried fruit and clear scents of chestnut honey.
Palate: well-rounded, strong, with the right balance of acidity, residual sugar and tannins. Extremely long-lasting.
