Taste profile from the winemaker: "A dry, white wine with golden reflections. The bouquet is intense with enticing fragrances of fresh citrus fruit and flowers. On the palate, its silky, well-balanced body is enhanced with hints of pineapple, grapefruit and spices that carry through to a crisp, dry finish. Enjoy it by itself as an apperitivo or with fish, seafood or poultry."

ABC Wines review: This wine has a fragrance of citrus and tropical fruit with soft floral notes. Smooth and of medium body on the palate, the tropical fruit flavors are initially slight sweet before a brisk acidity develops accompanied by some mineral dryness. The finish is nicely balanced. This is an ideal wine to serve as an apperitif, with a cheese and fruit appetizers tray, or with a light lunch. Our score: Above Average, just short of Excellent.
