DESCRIPTION: Gualto is a wine that has considerable ageing potential by virtue of the outstanding quality of its raw material, which was carefully selected in the vineyard. Even after ten years, the wine’s original elegance will still be present.
The fabric and elegance of this wine, as a result of clonal selection, choice of terrain, as well as thinning out of the vines before and during the harvest, make it suitable for long ageing. It will be interesting to open a bottle after some years with the trepidation of the wait and of the emotion of discovery to experience magical sensations
GASTRONOMIC ACCOMPANIMENTS: No particular pairings are necessary even if the complexity of the bouquet and the importance of the structure make it perfect for important occasions
