Description

Full bodied, complex Zöld Veltelini showing the fruitiness of fully ripened grapes, great concentration and pronounced oaky notes. Nose with honey and elderflower, ripened quince, schistose minerality, exciting tartness and vibrant fruitiness – all in perfect harmony. Long finish with intense notes of maturation and some subtle salinity.
