This wine has a fruity and floral bouquet with aromas of acacia flower and, in some years, white magnolia flower. It also has fruity notes of pear, apple and gooseberry. In the mouth the flavour is immediately fresh and intense and velvety on the palate with hints of peach and white-flesh fruit. The perlage is fine and persistent. The complexity is supported by a solid acidity with an elegantly zesty note in the finish.
