A deep yellow-gold wine with a complex, powerful honey and floral bouquet, with dried fruit and aromatic spices. Rich, off-dry and full flavoured with brioche, stone fruit and hints of tropical fruit and lime. Bright, deep and well layered. Sweetness is balanced against fine acidity and it has plenty of weight on the palate; good with rich pate or strong cheese, caramelized flavours either sweet or savoury, or fruity citrus dishes - especially pineapple.
This is 100% late-harvest Sylvaner from the Zotzenberg vineyard fermented using natural yeasts and aged for several months sur lie for complexity and richness. Of the Italian name, Seltz says: “Leonardo was happy when he was painting, and I am too when I make this wine, so that’s why I wrote Sono Contento on my label.”
