Castello Banfi cuvée Aurora Riserva
The 2010 vintage was characterized by intense snowfall during the winter and a spring with abundant rainfall. The regular summer, with temperatures in the seasonal average, allowed the correct ripening of the grapes. Then, thanks to a very dry end of August and the good temperature variations between day and night, the harvest gave excellent results.

TASTING NOTES: Straw yellow color with bright golden reflections, very fine and persistent perlage. Intense aroma characterized by hints of candied citrus peel which then evolve into aromas of brioches, dried fruit and vanilla. Austere and elegant wine, which is distinguished by its marked flavor and remarkable persistence.
Structured wine, suitable in combination with complex fish dishes, such as truffle-based first courses, vegetable flan or fondue. Also perfect as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to cold cuts and cheeses.
