The sample is crystalline of medium consistency, straw yellow, bright with slight greenish hues.
The wine opens with aromas reminiscent of delicate white flowers such as lily of the valley and hawthorn, followed by hints of fragrant white-fleshed fruits including green apple, pear leg, with a background of citrus and light herbaceous nuances.
Sample of good olfactory finesse, where a moderate acidity prevails, intense and with a good persistence. It is recommended to combine it with sea bass all’isolana with seasonal vegetables./em>
