Character: Chewy, with earthy botrytis tones. A cavalcade of “umami“. Hints of orange peel, black tea, cinnamon and cloves. High dried extract. A noble wine of remarkable sweetness and flavours, with aromas reminicent of both earthy and tropical fruits is the result. In the glass, the rich amber tones, flavours of mushroom, with piquant balanced acidity are earmarks of this wine.
