Tasting Notes: Pale rose petal, with gentle silvery hues. Nose is delicate, with ripe strawberry and nectarine aromas, flowery notes such as some orange blossom, tangerine peel, aniseed and liquorice and a subtle smoky, but airy sensation. Palate is dry and mellow, caressing with satin-like texture, medium plus acidity and generous zests giving spiciness. Intense flavours with lots of liquorice and pink pepper melting into fruitiness of strawberry and peach. Finish is long, with noble balsamic bitterness, offering a slightly tannic touch, and thus a certain structure.
