Franz Haas Müller Thurgau “Sofi” Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT
100% Muller Thurgau. A lively straw yellow color, with aromas reminiscent of Muscat, fresh fruit, peaches and flowers (yellow primrose), ending on an elegant and full-bodied flavor with a very pleasant savory finish. Compelling simplicity and fresh acidity.
