This has a color of deep and brilliant yellow gold, through which a stream of tiny energetic bubbles arises to a perfect cordon around the rim of the glass. The nose opens with a fresh and soft appeal, followed by a delicious complex combination of aromas: butter, soft spices dried fruits with grilled almonds and with ripe citrus and apricot notes. A touch of fresh mineral character dominates with some subtle evolved points. On the palate there is a fine fruity yet vinous element, lively yet perfectly balanced. Flavors of spice, dried fruits and ripe fresh fruits over caramel abound tied together by the firm mineral back bone.
