Tasting Note

Yellow-lemon color of medium intensity with golden hues. The nose is scented with vanilla and oaky aromas, suggesting barrel treatment, followed by elegant notes of citrus and green fruits, pepper and butter caramel. Dry on the palate with lively acidity and complex oaky flavors paired with the fruity character. The aftertaste is long and intense.
