Wine bright yellow-green color.
Rich, elegant taste of the wine is filled with notes of citrus and herbs and steel shades. Clear acidity inherent fault in the early years, is smoothed over time, allowing the fruit come to the fore.
Wine exudes a very soft, delicate peach flavor with hints of lemon, grapefruit, honeysuckle and minerals.
Great wine as an aperitif, recommended to serve with fish dishes, pork, rabbit meat, white meat poultry.
