 TASTING NOTE

Pale straw with hints of green reflections.
This is an austere and polite wine with aromas of ripe white melon and white peach Etna, followed by sweet, almost white chocolate and meringue flavours and hints of minerality. 
The palate is thin and unexpectedly soft. A nice acidity enhances the freshness. Floral notes on the finish.

Dry
