Expressing the finesse, purity and elegance of Chardonnay, this wine combines the scent of white flowers with the aromas of dried fruits.
The palate is creamy and textural, driven by a precise acidity with a fresh, supple roundness with hints of grapefruit, nectarine and nuts. Fine light bubbles, dry, lively and pure.
