Description
A mature and full wine. A darker and deeper yellow hue. The aroma is intense, mostly fruity. An abundant banana aroma with an equally abundant apple aroma, followed by herbal notes of dry foliage and mature pear tones. The taste is full and rounded, as mature as the aroma. The acidity is mild, the solid alcohol content gives it a mildly spicy note, while the rich extract prolongs the taste. The aftertaste is extremely robust and very pleasant, leaving the impression of mature fruitiness on the palate long after sipping.
