4 years in the bottle on yeast.
Intese straw yellow color, bright and brilliant, refined perlage, persistent and it seems never run out. Elegant on the nose. At first notes of orange blossons acacia, tilio notes and then yellow fruit, plum and later it’s coming more sweet with millefiori honey and brioche notes. At the end a delicate hint lightly spicy vanilla bean. It’s fresh, balanced and persistent in the mouth, the perlage is lively but velvet.
This Cuvée is surprising in its simplicity, elegance and freshness, that tempt to drink a second bottle of wine.
