Note di degustazione
Crystalline, straw yellow in color with golden reflections, consistent.
On the nose the sample is intense, quite complex and fine. The bouquet of its perfumes is quite broad: floral, fruity and aromatic. Intense floral notes of white rose and acacia; scent of tropical fruits such as pineapple, passion fruit, papaya; aromaticity and light nuance of rosemary. Closing with hints of citrus.
The sip is balanced, fresh, intense, quite persistent and fine.
It is recommended in combination with a salmon filet baked in a pistachio crust.
