A very pleasant golden color with hints of limoney yellow. A bold, elegant, refined nose with citrus fruit aromas. Light and crispy, the zesty tiny bubbles are
persistent. This is a vibrant, fruitful and fresh yet structured wine as Chardonnay’s natural acidity is the backbone of the wine. Round and generous in the mouth.
