Tasting notes: Intense straw yellow with golden reflections.

When tasted, the freshness and flavour well combined are accompanied by a fine and well-integrated carbon dioxide. Delicate astringent finish.
Pairings: A satisfying sparkling wine, tasty and excellent to drink, a versatile accompaniment to food, should also be tried with exotic cuisine, such as a chicken and vegetable tagine.
