Tasting notes

Appearance Sharpness and brightness for a straw yellow color with bright lemon and green reflections fascinating the observer, without distracting him from scents of rare elegance and delicate intensity tones.

Nose Intense from the beginning with clear signs of exotic fruits (pineapple, banana, with just a bit of mango and passion fruit), gently smoked background with distant memories of aromatic herbs (mints and marjoram) and hazelnut to give sinuous complexity.

Palate Good structured wine, warm, still young with fresh, sourish and savoury notes well-balanced. Persuasive finish and great balance still based on freshness.

Serving suggestions Ideal with noble baked fish or with sauces, crustaceans “busara”, delicious fish starters with fragrant maritime taste.

Serving temperature Best to serve at 12°C with better expressiveness at 15°C. Aeration after uncorking to reach 15° C suggested.
