TRENTODOC Pedrotti Brut
90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir, which spends at least 30 months in contact with the lees.
A yellow gold colour with golden lights. Fragrant to the nose, typically reminiscent of dried fruit and yellow apples. To the palate it is pleasantly acidic, with delicate mineral undertones and hints of fruit. It presents a fine and persistent perlage. It is perfect as an aperitif or to accompany the entire meal, this wine adds a touch of class and elegance to every dish.
