Straw yellow with golden rim.
A powerful wine with a rich, creamy taste and well integrated tannins. Harmonious disclosed tones of green apple and toffee, with slight acidity in the long aftertaste.
The wine has a generous aroma with notes of noble truffle, citrus, candied fruits and minerals.
The wine goes well with foie gras, duck breast with pears, shrimp.
