I Cavalieri della seta Sauvignon Krètos IGT
Our Piwi, I Cavalieri della Seta, was born from vines resistant to fungal diseases, obtained by crossing the classic European vine with varieties of American origin.
I Cavalieri della Seta is a wine that releases all its aromatic notes when uncorked. The perceived flower bouquet recalls the sweetness of the aphrodisiac flavors of passion fruit and pineapple leaves and the freshness of wild herbs of mint and rosemary.
Always attentive to sustainable choices, Brolo has preferred a cap deriving from sugar cane fibers, 100% natural, recyclable and biodegradable, which in addition to being in line with the philosophy of the low environmental impact farm, does not leave odors and preserves the wine in all its aromatic pleasantness.
Elegant and delicate like a Knight, it accompanies dishes and lends itself to even unusual combinations, stimulating mind and palate.
A combination of taste between hills and sea. The reference to clotted scents makes it perfect in combination with appetizers, fish-based risottos, crustaceans and fresh cheeses.
