Reviews of purchase Abadia de San Campio, 2010
Wine brilliant lemon yellow color.
Excellent refreshing taste of wine with excellent balance between sweetness and acidity to complement the wine a certain refinement, which persists for a long time to finish. Fruity notes of green apples and juicy pears, which are interspersed with notes of citrus and slight astringency, very harmoniously with the flavor.
Enough bright, rich, thick aroma of the wine is filled with hints of fruit, citrus notes and pleasant mineral tones.
Great wine as an aperitif, goes well with fish and seafood, cold smoked meat, white meat, poultry.
