Wine of a beautiful golden color.
The taste of wine is very concentrated, dense, fat, fat, ripe and rich, with a slight sweetness, impressive depth of shades of tropical fruit, long finish.
The aroma of the wine reveals spicy notes of orange and lemon peel, nuances noble botrytis.
In chilled wine goes well with seafood (shellfish) and fish dishes
