Crystal-clear sample, with a very lively straw yellow color with consistent golden reflections.
The sample opens its wide and well-defined range of perfumes with hints of fresh flowers such as acacia, artemisia and jasmine; the nose is then delighted by important and fresh fruity notes of passion fruit, yellow melon, exotic fruit and a hint of ripe apricot. Hints of salty, spicy notes of cinnamon and vanilla and notes of Mediterranean scrub complete the olfactory examination.
The taste is soft, dense, it is characterized by a long, almost infinite, aromatic persistence. In the finish citrus notes remain, which invite you to repeat the tasting.
An iconic wine of the Campania wine scene.
