Tasting

The robe is a light yellow with green reflections of a mild intensity. The disk is bright, limpid, transparent. The wine has a vivid youthful quality. The nose is frank, pleasant, with a beautiful intensity. It gives out a dominant of fresh and fruity scents (carambola, citrus fruits, lemon peel) as well as a slight hint of honey. Airing enhances the peel and reveals delicate floral notes. The nose is smooth, delicate and shows a good degree of maturity of the grapes. It provides a very pleasant feeling of freshness. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample. The alcoholic base is well balanced. One evolves on a sharp and edgy medium, where the range of flavours expresses the fruitiness, citrus fruits, lemon, some notes still in the background, and this slight hint of honey. The finish offers a moderate length and a sharp vivacity. The structure is fresh and edgy, it displays a good range of ripe and primary flavours. Good wine.
