Tasting Notes: Golden color resulting from the maceration process. Peculiar and challenging nose. It has a strong aromatic intensity, with notes of fruit of very mature yellow flesh (quince), amplified by the skin maceration. Highlights include notes of caramelized orange peel, crystallized honey, dried fruits and slight earthy and resinous suggestions. To support this aromatic richness fruit of a terroir of excellence, there are harmonious sweet notes of the barrel used of high quality. In the mouth, it is surprising the "acid nerve", which combines a remarkable acidic freshness with some admirable mature & smooth tannins,Persistence in the mouth is very long, with a positively mineral attack.
