TASTING NOTE: Giuseppe De Siena
ON THE EYES: GLOSSY-Dazzling, crystalline, citrine yellow gold enlivened by a delicate sparkling effervescence.
NOSE: EXOTIC-The fruit emerges as delicate, golden, pale exotic fruit - mango and kiwi - and dried fruit - hazelnut, almond and fig. A touch of iodine enhances the flawless scent of this wine. The delicate spices reflect the depth of the wine: white pepper, smoked tea and cocoa.
ON THE PALATE: SILKY-A wine with depth but also refined, precise, in harmony. Voluptuous delicacy with notes of meringue. Subtle shades evoke distant lands: mint tea, lime, kumquat and exotic fruits such as pineapple and candied ginger.
WEATHER: IDYLLIC-The beautiful sunny weather has given a generous harvest with magnificent grapes. An exceptional summer resulted in a rich and sumptuous vintage.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Saint Jacques caviar carpaccio with white truffle oil, poached duck foie gras with green curry, sole fillet cooked with coconut oil, mango tartare, citrus vinaigrette
