It is characterised by its yellow and very light green colour and by a intense nose.

and a colour veering towards carmine. This wine is characterised by
its complex nose with some lovely red fruit aromas but above all,

key words. The attack is supple, silky and harmonious with a touch
of raspberry. As the wine evolves it melts in the mouth, its tannins
are pleasant leaving an impression of dried flowers and elegance.
