From the first crystalline reflections the color turns out to be straw yellow. The intense and exuberant mousse is accompanied by a very fine, continuous and persistent perlage.
The scent is complex and essential in its purity: elegant hints of chamomile, wildflowers, alfalfa, Golden apple and a delicate note of lemon zest.
The palate is full and dry, savory and gently delicate, with an important minerality and a fresh acidity.
