“This inviting nose balances fresh floral notes of honeysuckle, chamomile and magnolia with deeper tones of apricot, candied lemon and beeswax. A touch of slateand wet stone energize the aromatics. The broad mouth is layered with white peach,quince, meringue. lemon grass and a thread of salted caramel throughout. The juicyacidity tinged with crushed seashell, bright and playful-calling for another sip.” – Luisa Ponzi, Director of Winemaking and Viticulture
