Apricots, white peaches and some smoky notes, which is a result of oak ageing. On the palate, it offers even more character than on the nose.
The colour is medium deep golden. Slightly closed on the nose at first but then opens and gets opulent. Dry on the palate, intense, full bodied with a good amount of ripe acidities.
Food pairings: Pasta with truffle, herbal omelette. Also, fish that is larger, tastier, possibly wild and by no means portioned.
