A very nice visit with Martina as a charming guide. A family estate since 1957 consisting of 15 ha, producing around 80.000 bottles per year.
A fresh, open nose with notes of ripening peach, gravel and white pepper. Very good.
The taste is cool and fine with a good acidity, peach and lemon fruit and also with a white pepper touch.
