On perusal the full golden color presents nuances of green which is made even more brilliant by the elegant, fine and persistent perlage. The intense aroma releases floral notes of magnolia, jasmine, and white roses and acacia as well as fruity notes of lemons, tangerines and white peaches which tantalise the nose. On the palate it is at once creamy, soft, well-balanced with an enduring finale as wave after wave of balsamic notes contribute to making it complex, rich and persistent. A perfect wine for aperitif pared with appetizers or after the meal with desserts, fruit tarts and light pastries.
Serve at 8/10 °C.
