Tasting

​The robe is a yellow with crystalline reflections, the disk is bright and transparent. The wine shows a beautiful youth.
The nose is open, expressive, and we can find floral notes. A nose typical of this grape variety, of very pleasant ripe grapes produces by a hot vintage year.
In the mouth, the onset is fresh and rather long, the middle mouth is full-bodied, with alcohol and a slight touch of bitterness.
The finish is winery, dry, slightly salty with a very beautiful return on bitterness, all in finesse.
