Wine Princess suggests
With a recipe so full of energy and colour, Wine Princess suggests to combine a simple yet amazingly fragrant and aromatic wine: Fior di Luna. from the Cantina Lunae of Ortonovo (La Spezia), Liguria. A white DOC wine made from Vermentino, Albarola and Greco vines.
Who should drink it: those who love flower and fruit flavours and wines low in alcohol – just 12,5%.
When to drink it: in the Summer, served at a temperature between 8 and 10° along with vegetables and the aubergines parmigiana, for a delightful experience.
A wonderful opportunity: combine with other grilled vegetables at the next barbecue with your friends!
God save the wine!
