Appearance Bright straw yellow, limpid, with clear green reflections.
Nose Typical aromas of fresh fruit (peach, exotic fruit) reveal citrus notes (yellow grapefruit) and a very pale and appreciable smoky note. Elegant wine, vertical, charming, but not invasive.
Palate Very young, but satisfying and with a beautiful, fresh-savoury structure; flavourful, charming.
Serving suggestions Aperitif wine, which can well be served with oven cooked or properly grilled noble fish. Wonderful to enjoy with grilled or baked scallops and delicate herb (properly dosed) omelettes, where melissa and mint prevail with a bit of spring onions.
