Tasting note

Vibrant pale lemon-gold color. Complex bouquet. The nose is intense with aromas of citrus fruits, green apple and pear, accompanied by flowery notes on the background.   Multifunctional aromatic character, with intense aromas of citrus fruits, green apple and pear. Notes of white flowers in the background. On the palate dry yet slightly oily with a typical crisp acidity to balance the complex tasty pallet of fruit and flowers. Complex finish that lasts.
