White Natura is made out of particular grapes of Ribolla, Malvasia and autochthonous variety Zelen. The yellow colour with gold fragrances indicates that the wine was matured in the finest wooden barrels. It is wine, produced as our grandparents used to do it, highly connected with nature. The grapes were macerated for 20 days, thus obtaining more colors that were reflected in orange hues, a better structural body in more antioxidants, keeping the wine stable in a natural way. Aroma is fruty-flowernes and complemented by the subtle aroma of vanilla and smoke. The Ribolla character is dominant, and fits nicely with Malvasia and Zelen, which makes the wine wider, moderately full and more elegant.
