Ali d'Oro is Italian for wings of gold, which might describe the elation felt after taking your first sip of this rich dessert wine. Made from late harvest Traminette, a hybrid varietal based on Gewürztraminer, Ali d'Oro boasts fragrant aromas and rich apricot and honey flavors. It is best enjoyed on its own.
