Appearance: Salmon Pink.
Nose: An intense and complex nose that develops aromas dominated by red fruits (strawberries, raspberries), and a touch of white peach.
Mouth: The mouth has a supple attack, suggesting plenty of freshness. Overall it is round, unctuous, with citrus notes dominating, and a finish full of grapefruit zest.
