Quite youthful colour here. Boarding light golden with a slight greenish hue. Intense nose. Quite aromatic here, with both primary fruit, but there is also some slight indication of age. Some evolution with some roasted nuts. I think a toastiness coming from ageing, not from oak. Almost like a hint of white truffle or a certain earthiness, paired with ripe stone fruit and fresh citrus. Good bite on the palate. A quite concentrated wine that combines a richness of fruit, a certain opulence but really well-defined freshness here. Positively lean I would say with a very long finish. Offering both those tropical sensation with a mineral and firm finish. Good.
