The glass glows with a golden yellow colour, which reflects abundantly from tears, slowly falling along the edge of the glass.
Intense and delicate aromas are reminiscent of dried pineapple slices, baked apple, quince, candied lemon, sultana, honey, dried yellow rose, straw, sage, wild mint, vanilla, caramel, cocoa butter and roasted almonds.
The mouthfeel is soft. Our palate is pleasantly refreshed and lined with a delicate mineral note. We also notice a slight, tannic astringency, but it is pleasant and nicely incorporated into the structure.
The taste is majestic, it feels youthful, but it indicates the seriousness and a look that directs it on the long road ahead. Elegance radiates from this wine, which has a long persistency and an intense, harmonious taste.
