Tasting Notes
Crystal clear, straw-yellow in color with very light greenish reflections, of good consistency.
Intense aromas are highlighted on the nose, with a range of complex and fine quality aromas. Hints of fresh white flowers are accompanied by an effluvium of fruity scents: ripe peach, passion fruit, notes of papaya and a slight hint of citrus. It is completed with notes of freshly mown grass.
The sip is fresh, well balanced in its components. Long and persistent finish with an aftertaste of ripe citrus fruits.
Ideal wine to be freely shared, both throughout the meal and drunk in pleasant company. Ideal both for a young audience and for slightly more sophisticated users.
I tried it on a warm autumn evening paired with a fish-based dinner.
