Intense and complex. It opens with elegant roasted and vanilla notes, and continues with exotic fruits such as lychee, mango and pineapple against a background of flint and lemon peel

Crespella with smoked salmon and fresh ricotta cheese, fish ravioli with saffron and cherry tomatoes, grilled lobster with herb butter, spaghetti with saffron sauce, jumbo prawns and cherry tomatoes

Chardonnay with character and depth. Dry and savoury on the palate with excellent fresh taste. Finish accompanied by fruity and spicy aromas in the nose.

Shining golden, slightly greenish highlights
