Tasting

Maio 2012

Intense lemon-green. Mediuim-intense on the nose, offering aromatic herbs (laurel and rosemary) and balsamic, mature orchard fruit, and fine lees notes, backed by salinity and minerality. On the palate the wine offers depth, freshness and unctuosity, white flowers and balsamic notes. Persistent and balanced, with an elegant bitterness.

Maio 2010

Deep lemon-green, notes of white flowers, herbal (laurel, anise), stone fruits, mineral (stone) and fine lees. Voluptuous and complex, with excellent acidity, recurring fruit and herbal notes, a sensation of salinity, and an elegant and light bitter finish.
