This wine is very lightly coloured with a minute, persistent perlage. It is intensely fruity and floral with extremely insistent and highly refined aromas. Hints of good ripe fruit – particularly yellow apples – and wisteria flower are highly pronounced. The wine is amiable and caressing and fresh with a very balanced body. It has great harmony, a long and intense aromatic persistence and a markedly fruity finish.
