Friuli Colli Orientali
It is a blend of Chardonnay (85%) and Sauvignon (15%). The choice to create Sonata originated from the desire to carry on the way initiated with “Va Pensiero”.
Two internationally known vines that have a unique expression in this terroir and offer an authentic example of elegance.
In Sonata the colour is straw yellow with elegant golden nuances. The fragrance, sweet and delicate, remind one of vanilla and tropical fruit enriched with a bit of toast and mineral. On the palate the flavour is full, warm and smooth; the finish is harmonious and aromatic.
