Tasting notes

Bright yellow colour with golden tones.

Elegant aromas of lime and magnolias flowers.
A sense of citrus jam and mastic that co-exist harmoniously with herbal aromas of thyme, sage and mineral hints.

The presence of the barrel is noticeable mainly by the sense of vanilla.

In the palate the body is full, oily and the acidity creates balance with strong and long aftertaste. The maturation in the barrel together with fine wine lees is detectable with the aromas of wood, roasted coffee and flowers.

It is aged more than 8 years and develop a strong full-bodied with a long pleasant aftertaste.Enjoy it at 10–12 °C.
