Wine golden straw color with greenish reflections.
The wine has a complex, smooth, silky, rich taste with a good balance between fruit and acidity, subtle hints of peach and citrus shades of bright, long-lasting aftertaste.
Fresh, clean, rich flavor of the wine is filled with tones of roasted almonds and figs, notes of ripe fruit and spices.
Great wine as an aperitif, as well as in combination with salads, fish and seafood.
