CHARACTER AND STYLE
A shining and limpid pale yellow colour. The nose is really fine and expressive with its mixed aromas: (white fruits, nuts, lemon, and stone.) With its own identity and its interesting balance, the bottle shows a real charisma. On the palate, the wine is lively, fresh and powerful with a really personal character; it cannot leave indifferent. Never over-matured, but rich, well balanced with its delicate richness, a final with a long persistence on the palate shows a real potential for the future.
