Description: dull straw yellow with greenish highlights. The nose is distinguished by a nicely delicate and fine aromatic persistence: the bouquet is fresh with hints of citrus and tropical fruits. The palate is full and smooth, persistent and tangy with a finish reminiscent of hay. Just the right acidity and pleasant minerality make it an extremely pleasant wine.
Pairing suggestions: excellent with fish and shellfish dishes, soups and light starters.
