SENSORY ANALYSIS

Straw yellow with flashes of gold, brilliant. Intense mineral flurries of rock salt, pumice stone and sulfurous hints spread over an olfactory framework that begins with perceptions of green mandarin peel, cedar, “sbergie” and plums; continues with orange blossom, broom and chamomile and closes with elegant balsamic hints of oregano and “cucunci”. Full-bodied and balanced, with a freshness supported by vibrant savoriness. Soft, at times rounded. Intense and persistent finish with citrus and mineral echoes.
