Tasting Notes
Limpid, amber yellow in color, consistent.
The nose is a scent of ripe fruit. Apricot jam, but also candied orange and tropical fruits with notes of papaya and mango. The ripe fruit is replaced by hints of aromatic herbs such as sage and eucalyptus aromas. Hints of cigar boxes close.
The sip is pleasant, never cloying. The acidity balances perfectly with the sweetness. If you feel the need for a new sip.
It is recommended in combination with the Sicilian cubaita, a sweet made with almonds, honey and sesame seeds.
