Tasting sheet: Strongly citrus and floreal, with elegant mineral and spicy iodinbe notes. The balsamic and undergrowth enhance its great freshness and unparalleled length. Opulent but at the same time vertical on the palate, it is a balanced wine in its complexity. Ready, but destined for a long ageing.
