  • Tasting Notes

    • Full golden color made even more brilliant by the elegant, fine and persistent perlage. The intense aroma releases fl oral perfumes of magnolia, jasmine, white roses and acacia as well as fruity notes of lemons, tangerines and white peaches which tantalize the nose. On the palate it is at once creamy, soft and well-balanced with a pleasant freshness and fullness of flavor. Well-structured with an enduring finish – complex, rich and persistent. A perfect wine for the aperitif paired with appetizers or after the meal with desserts, fruit tarts and light pastries
