WINE TASTING COMMENTS
Beautiful straw-colored yellow with gold glints.
The nose is very expressive, fully open, with notes of white flower, pears in syrup, roasted almond and candied citrus.
The mouth is full, with a forthright attack, very rounded, with a wonderfully fresh lengthy finish on aromas of white flesh fruits and white flowers.
This is a well structured, very digest and balanced wine.
