Nose: The intensity of the scent is strong but never overwhelming. Discernible hints of citrus fruits and herbaceous characteristics of fresh cut hay and white flowers.
Palate: The wine is dry, characterized by its high acidity that guarantees dynamism and great drinkability, making the wine lean and vibrant at the same time. The aromas discerned by the nose are once again found on the palate. The wine is savory and the finish is decidedly mineral.
