“The fermentaion in a controlled enviroment has allowed the formation of a complex aromatic bouquet with hints of citrus and ripe fruits together with light notes of aniseed and liquorice. The pleasant freshness and the fruity taste gives good structured body and lingering flavour on the palate.Clear, and the colour is intense straw yellow.”
