Marche IGP Passerina


“Bursting with a taste that’s crisper and cleaner than Mary Poppins’ apron, this organic white has a pale-yellow colour, with fruity, floral aromas and a hint of luscious green apple.”


Passerina grapes are grown all over central Italy and the name is derived from the word Passero, meaning Sparrow, as legend has it that the grapes are these birds’ favourite drink. For many years these grapes were blended into better known Italian wines, but in recent times, Passerina has enjoyed a return to favour and this delicate, yet aromatic wine is an excellent example of the results.
