Yellow golden hue with green tints. An intense nose of yellow-flesh fruits graciously blended with oak touches. An elegant smoothness is filling up the mouth and giving way to a rich and complex aromatic palette. Mineral notes, mandarin touches, and zests citrus along with subtle toasted flavours bringing a nice freshness. Well-balanced with a beautiful length. Fermented in fine grained oak barrels, sourced from local forests. Aged for 11 months in barrels with regular stirring of the lees, then 10 months in vats.
Ideal with saffron medallion of monkfish, creamy seafood risotto or with a beautiful platter of ripened cheeses.
