COMMENTARY

Yellow gold robe with light green tints and good intensity. The nose is typical and pleasant, with a nice intensity. The dominant smells are candied, over-ripened, fruity (pear, quince), honey, but also fine smoked touches as well as apple and beeswax. In mouth it is mellow, aromas are those from quince, plum, apple, honey and beeswax. The finale has a satisfying length and a nice vivacity. The structure is tasty, rich and concentrated and its vivacity makes it well-balanced.
