La Guardiense

The winery is situated in the Santa Lucia area of Guardia Sanframondi in the very heart of the southern Italian province of Benevento. Geographically this is part of Campania, but to understand the real identity of this land you have to fully appreciate the particular historical background of the area. This is the homeland of the ancient Samnite people, and is a land of undulating hills and plains which even has its own particular micro-climate that protects it from the excesses of heat and cold. In fact it is well protected both by the Matese mountain chain that separates it from the Molise region, and by the Taburno massif that cuts it off from the coast.

Tasting Notes

The wine has a straw-yellow colour and a strong fruity bouquet. The fruity nuances increase as the wine opens up, leading to a well-balanced, pleasant and refreshing finish.

Food Matches

Ideal with light appetizers, gnocchi or home-made pasta with tomato sauce. Try also fish dishes, shell fish and other seafood dishes. Very good with aubergine parmigiana and perfect with soft creamy cheese
