Tasting notes:
Sample of bright straw yellow color, with light greenish reflections.
The nose releases a scent of aromas of white flowers reminiscent of jasmine and lily of the valley, accompanied by crunchy and fragrant notes of fresh fruits, still not too ripe, very pleasant, including yellow plum, white peach, green apple with aromatic lime citrines. Everything blends with mineral suggestions reminiscent of the brackish of the coast and the aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean scrub such as rosemary and sage.
The taste corresponds to what is highlighted by the sense of smell, the balance is quite good, the wine gives fresh sensations and a marked sapidity that invites you to take a new sip. To be paired with a lime marinated scallop carpaccio.
