Description: An excellent expression of Ansonica, this wine spotlights the special characteristics of the variety. The intense and elegant aromas range from the fruity notes of apples and floral tones of acacia to those, more complex, of a salty or mineral (flint) cast. The flavor is structured and mouth-filling with appealing freshness and sapidity. A lingering finish on nose and palate.
