Tasting Notes


Yellow, with a light bright golden. Its nose is thin, intense and deep, with aromas reminiscent of fresh almonds to delicate white stone fruits, dried apricots, notes of white honey, hawthorn flower and caramel. In the mouth it is meaty, elegant and fresh, with a very good acidity that will extend life for several years.
