Cavazza - BOCARA Gambellara Classico DOC - 88 points.
In the glass a light straw yellow color with greenish hue.
In the nose delicate aromas of sun-ripened oranges, fresh fruit, elderflower and a hint of sweet honey.
On the palate a wonderful length and complexity. Pleasantly cool and with a fine spicy minerality. Great expressive fruitines. This wine has a great price quality rate.
