When can we say that a wine is good? Maybe when its simplicity, which I personally find in full and transparent correspondence with the place of origin, overwhelms you in a passionate drink, that is when the taste sends the brain synapses into a tailspin and only wine is perceived. Or maybe when it shows its strong personality, a sapid and mineral tension, in this case that of Vallagarina in the shadow of Castello di Avio. This tension is channeled into the power of Chardonnay - obtained exclusively from selected grapes -, through the complexity of a bouquet that moves from floral to fruity, from pastry notes to the roundness of melted butter to finally fade into an infinite persistence.

Seiterre winery has a story of over one hundred years. It was the beginning of the last century when viticulture took the place of traditional mixed crops. Giovanbattista, born in 1877, believed in viticulture very much, and with the Rizzi farm he started a wine-growing path that today finds full realization in Seiterre winery. Maso Bianco Trento DOC is an elegant wine, the magic of a territory that elevates the enchantment of sunny valleys, intense and refined aromas of almond and white flowers, candied fruit, pastry of warm croissants.

A light and at the same time complex sparkling wine to be combined with fish first courses such as Paccheri with lobster or Linguine with shrimps.
