Bellafonte Trebbiano Spoletino “Arneto” Umbria IGT
100% Trebbiano Spoletino. A bright gold appearance, intense notes of citrus, yellow peach, pineapple, yellow flowers and an accent of flint. The complex palate is perfectly harmonized with its warm sensation and the fullness of flavor.
We wish to create a great wine, which respects both nature and tradition, by interpreting the natural exuberance of Sagrantino grapes in an elegant and refined way.
