TASTING NOTES

Color: bright straw with greenish reflections.

Aroma: gives the nose intense sensations of white-fleshed fruit, spring flowers and citrus fruits, on a typical flint background.

Flavor and texture: in the mouth it is supported by a lively acidity, which finds in the sapidity the ideal support. Persistent, it closes with a memory of anise and sweet almond.
