Upon visual examination, the sample is crystal-clear and luminous, with a straw yellow color with a very light golden coat, of good consistency.
On the nose, the range of scents is very intense, broad and very fine. It opens with hints of fresh white and yellow flowers, accompanied by important hints of fruit reminiscent of melon, apricot with heady hints of tropical fruits. There is no shortage of scents of Mediterranean scrub, where myrtle and fennel emerge forcefully.
The sip is an authentic pleasure for the palate: balanced, with an endless taste-olfactory persistence of exotic fruit. Impossible not to repeat the sip.
The Marisa Cuomo company, with Fiorduva 2021, confirms a trend of continuous qualitative growth that is constantly repeated year after year, harvest after harvest.
Not only an excellence in its homeland, Campania, but one of the most representative Italian white wines in the world.
