Golden colour, incredibly concentrated, intense bouquet. It is worth aerating in the glass for a while so that it can open after so many months spent in barrel and in bottle. Giving it time, we can experience the different notes coming from the glass, one after the other: honey, spices and roasted nuts. On the palate we can realize that – due the vintage – acids make it vibrant even tough it has a significant sugar content. We can detect the aromas resulted from maturation as well: date, candied citrus fruits, autumn leaves and spices fill the mouth. A wine for special occasions.
