Tasting Notes


Pale yellow and bright colour with greenish hues. Citrus and white fruits (green apple, pear) with floral and slightly herbal memories, very fine expression of the variety. Very good balance, well-salted acidity, fresh, greedy and with a certain oiliness note. Great balance of flavours where green apple and lemon, ripened greengage plum and white flowers are predominating.
