Tasting Notes

Pale straw yellow in color with greenish highlights. Dense aromas of ripe fruit on the nose over nuances of spring blossoms. Well-balanced on the palate with fine structure, zesty acidity, and savory fruit, with a long, elegant finish. Pairs well with salted fish, seafood antipasti, and creamy cheeses.
