Tasting Note

Greenish yellow color. Unctuous in the glass. On the nose it is fruity and fresh, with hints of white fruit (melon and pear), white flowers and a background of aromatic herbs (rosemary, thyme, fennel) along with very soft hints of vanilla and spices. In the mouth it is fresh, sweet, wide, balanced and persistent with an expression of ripe and varietal fruit.
