Puro white 2015
Brilliant golden yellow colour, with numerous fine and lasting pearls rising towards the top in many necklaces.
Our noses are flooded with intense, refined aromas of boiled yellow apple, ripe pineapple, lemon peel, yellow grapefruit, yellow rose petals, hay, roasted hazelnuts and almonds, all pleasantly underlined by a note of bread crust.
The taste is bone dry. We detect softness, pearls gently embrace our mouths, refreshing them and finishing with a characteristic mineral signature.
It has an intense and lasting taste, full body and accentuated elegance.
It is a harmonious expression of a unique, stylistically produced sparkling wine, which pleasantly caresses us in the mouth, refreshes us and elegantly intertwines with mineral salinity.
