Tasting Notes:

Golden straw color with shades of green.

On the nose, full-bodied and very sweet with certain reminders of ripe fruit with floral tones.

On the palate, the wine is very fresh and meaty with lively tones of apple, pear and fennel. It has a sweet-acidic balance, with an elegant, long-lasting and intense finish.
