Winemaker's Notes

Amber-shot yellow color with light coppery tinges. The nose reveals a delicate structure, characterized by a wide range of clearly distinguishable floral notes. The wine has supple structure, sustained by a distinctly tangy freshness. Delicate, lingering hints of white-fleshed fruit on the palate persist through the finish.
