Tasting Notes

A bright golden color, adorned with a fine and persistent effervescence that dances in the glass. On the nose, it exudes an inviting bouquet of freshly baked bread, toasted almonds, and orchard fruits, accompanied by delicate floral and citrus notes. On the palate, the wine is rich and complex, with flavors of ripe apples, poached pears, and lemon zest, complemented by a subtle hint of spice and a creamy, velvety texture. The acidity is well-integrated, adding freshness and vitality to the wine's opulent profile. The finish is long and memorable, leaving a lingering impression of elegance and finesse.
