Creamy White Wine - Bright. Mineral. Deep Complexity.

Ballarino




BALLARINO 2012

VALDONICA, TUSCANY ITALY

A rather complex, structured and well-crafted creamy white wine. Floral with hints of eucalyptus and kitchen herbs followed by a slight wood presence. In mouth it is fresh, with a tasty mineral and savoury note.

OUR WINEMAKER

Martin Kerres of Valdonica

"Valdonica happened to me, it was not planned. I was looking for a small summer house in the beautiful Tuscany and Valdonica found me. I was enchanted by the beauty of the untouched nature here. A few years after finding this place, my life changed completely and I moved here, Valdonica has become my new home." - Dr. Martin Kerres, Owner
