Tasting Notes
The wine is remarkable for its intense varietal perfume, with predominantly floral aromas (orange blossom and jasmine) and fruit with hints of citrus and tropical notes. 

On the palate, it is fresh and weighty with minerality and a persistent and aromatic finish. Its positive evolution in the bottle ensures that it can be enjoyed with great pleasure for a number of years after harvest.
