SPARKLING WHITE WINE – SUR LIE
Pale yellow with light green reflexes.
The bouquet evokes sage, wild fennel, chamomile and clementine.
The taste is delicious and lively; the salt and the carbon dioxide sustain a soft and fruity center mouth.
Pleasantly persistently in the white flowers’ retro- na al return.
