The nose, pleasant and open, exhales aromas of white flowers and fruits, acacia, peach, pear, all slightly honeyed. Here we have a beautiful maturity and pretty clean and delicate aromatic expression.
In the mouth, the wine is very pleasant, with suppleness and roundness; it is oriented towards a nice aromatic amplitude with aromas of fruits like white grapefruit, dried thyme, and white flowers. Ends with a more southern finish, marked by spices.
