Nose: The wine expresses an intense and elegant minerality that enhances its flavor, a typical characteristic of the Verdicchio varietal. Rotating the glass releases intense floral notes, including those of yellow and white flowers, in particular hawthorn.
Taste: The wine opens softly, with no residual sugars, and is immediately characterized by its acidity, which is perfectly counterbalanced by the flavor. The aromas remain in the long aftertaste, with hints of minerals and flowers, finishing with a slightly bitter note.
