Robe with brilliant and crystal-clear shades of light green. Youthful, fresh and flowery (rose and acacia) aromatic expression combined with the exotic fruit taste of pineapple and the subtle hints of oriental spices characteristic of Gewürztraminer. To the palate, the attack is supple and tender, with good structure and balanced proportions. Gastronomic wine, which goes well with cooking that can be exotic, expressive and slightly spicy, with cheese, with white meat dishes served with light sweet and sour sauces.
