On perusal the full golden colour presents nuances of green which is made even more brilliant by the elegant, fine and persistent perlage. The intense aroma releases floral notes of magnolia, jasmine, white roses and acacia as well as fruity notes of lemons, tangerines and white peaches which tantalise the nose. On the palate it is at once creamy, soft, well-balanced with a pleasant freshness and fullness of flavour. Well-structured with an enduring finale as wave after wave of balsamic notes contribute to making it complex, rich and persistent. A perfect wine for the aperitif paired with appetizers or after the meal with desserts, fruit tarts and light pastries.

Nestled in the Euganean Hills, a group of volcanic rolling, cone-shape slopes that rise above the Padovan-Venetian plane, is one of the region's fastest emerging leaders in top quality wine production – Maeli. The winery is directed by winemaker Elisa Dilavanzo, who has drawn new energy from the support given by Gianluca and Desiderio Bisol. With their vision, Elisa has been encouraged to search for new expressions in a grape variety, Moscato Giallo, that still has so much to reveal. The variety of the land, the steepness of the hills, the varying exposition of the vineyards and the peculiarities of the micro-climate motivate Elisa to continue to explore and research every aspect of winemaking in this unique land and ancient varietal.
