Tasting Notes:
Luigi Bosca Gala 3 is a great white blend in which Viognier contributes the elegant aromas of peach and apricot, that are combined with a touch of minerality typical of Riesling, in excellent harmony with the citrus and honey notes of Chardonnay.  Ageing the Chardonnay in casks is precisely what adds complexity to the blend through vanilla notes and a considerable mouthfeel volume, that is completed with a delicate acidity to support an attractive freshness.

Recommended wine serving temperature:
Between 12°C and 14°C.

Recommended pairings:
A perfect match for cheeses such as Emmental or Gruyere, ceviches and fatty fish as the black hake.
