Pomino Bianco Riserva DOC
Benefizio Riserva tells the story of Chardonnay in Tuscany. This variety was introduced to the vineyards of the Pomino Castle in 1855 and already in 1878 the estate received the gold medal at the Paris Expo for the quality of its wines. In 1973 Benefizio was born from a vineyard located at 700 m above sea level: the first white wine in Italy fermented in barrique. With the 2005 vintage Benefizio acquired the mention "Riserva".

TASTING NOTES
Benefizio presents itself for its brilliant straw yellow color with golden reflections. The nose has a unique, delicate and persistent bouquet: hints of candied orange peel, dried fruit, white flowers, light notes of pepper. Over time, pleasant toasting notes appear; the finish is long and persistent. Harmonious and balanced wine in which the freshness and the alcoholic note harmonize well.
