Yellow straw colour with golden reflections of brilliant tonalities. Intense and complex. Ripe white fruit: peach and Golden Delicious. Lemon peel citrus notes. Flashes of aromatic herbs: rosemary, thyme and bay leaf. Cherry blossom. Moss and hay. The aging notes are infinite: toasted bread crust, pu pastry, butter, toasted hazelnuts, custard, coee, praline, vanilla or English chocolates. Powerful attack and with tremendous nuances. Balanced maturity and freshness. Fine, melting and creamy bubble that gives a sensation of fullness, a cares on the palate. Expressive finish that confirms the hints of fruit, the long aging and a mineral note that completes the whole.
