Tasting notes: Lively, vibrant, long, complex wine. Fruit bomb explodes in the mouth.

The nose shows hints of creamy vanilla, honey and quince. It’s still youthful on the palate, with lovely intensity of quince and apricot supported by a fine acid backbone and very long finish. Vibrant, deep and friendly.

The suggested drinking temperature is between 10-12 °C.  The wine wonderfully accompanies with white fish dishes, seafood or pasta dishes but it is also very drinkable just on its own.
