Wine description

Appearance: rich antique yellow-gold
Bouquet: very complex, releasing emphatic notes of dried and candied fruit, mixed nuts, apricot, orange zest, fig, date, and honey, enlivened with floral nuances of broom and lime blossom, and in the background, spice and toasty oak.
Palate: very rich, smooth, sweet, and appealingly fat, with acidity and residual sugar in a dynamic balance. Long-lingering finish attractively laden with aromatic fruit.

Serving suggestions

Delicious with highly-flavoured or blue cheeses.
Outstanding with foie gras and with petits fours and fruit-based sweets, but wonderful sipped all by itself, as a “vino da meditazione."

Serve at 14-15°C.
