Pietra Pass-O

Wine Description

Pass-O is an aromatically lush and elegant wine made with late harvest Fiano Bianco. This autochthonous Apulia grape was previously thought to be in the Fiano family but was later discovered to be in the same family of Moscato.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant golden straw in color, this ample bouquet opens with enticing scents of tropical fruit, peach blossoms and jasmine recalling sensations of an early summer’s stroll through the Salento countryside. The ripe, enveloping, full-bodied palate delivers refreshing tones of mango and delicate hints of honey. Fresh acidity lifts the creamy flavors.

Food Pairings

Perfect choice for an aperitif, fresh herbed cheeses, or paired with various seafood dishes including shellfish, oysters, octopus
