Reviews of purchase Geografico, "Pavo Nero" Bianco, Toscana IGT
The wine is light straw-golden color with an attractive sheen.
The wine demonstrates a fresh, clean, well-balanced taste with fruity and mineral accents and a pleasant sourness in a dry aftertaste.
The refreshing aroma of the wine harmoniously intertwines shades of white fruits, spring flowers and minerals.
The wine is great as an aperitif, and also makes a great pair of summer salads, seafood and grilled white fish.

Cooperative Agricoltori del Chianti Geografico was founded in 1961 by 17 winemakers, who have joined together to improve the quality of its products and strengthening its distribution, as well as to protect the identity of the Chianti Classico wine region. 60s were not just for the winemakers. The merger meant the opportunity to combine their efforts when dealing with quality wines, reducing the cost of production and co-construction of the distribution network.
