Clear with golden yellow tones. Small bubbles are gently released to form various strings that rise to the surface.
Intense aroma of exotic fruit, typical of the Chardonnay grape variety. Also noticeable are the tertiary aromas of the ageing on the lees which give it more fresh bakery and syrupy features.
In the mouth it is very complete with good body. On the palate, it is interesting to note the very fine, regular bubbles. It is silky with definite hints of ageing. One can also perceive fruit flavours and an elegant and long finish.Tech. specs
