Pairing: The ideal accompaniment to intensely flavored fish dishes or poultry
pale yellow in color, with greenish reflections, a rich aroma of yellow fruits characteristic of the Chardonnay variety, such as peach and pineapple, combined with toasted and vanilla “nuances”, from the contact with French wood. In the mouth, we find strong flavors of yellow fruits well combined with wood, a clear acidity, which gives it a mineral character and a full and persistent finish. With the aging in the bottle, it gains complexity, highlighting notes of dried fruits.
