Tasting Notes:
A revolutionary wine, and not just in name - no Nebbiolo here! Instead, an intense golden yellow colour with a nose that is sweet and fruity with hints of rose, candied fruit, pears, apricot jam, peaches in syrup and intense notes of Muscat raisins. The mouth is full and mellow, fat and persistent with a well balanced acidity Intense, sweet notes, combined with notes of almond. Delicious.
