Smell: On the nose this classic Pinot Bianco scores with crisp notes of apple and pear mingling with aromas of raspberry and lime, plus a touch of camomile and lemon grass to round off the composition
Taste: Body and balance sum up the Pinot Bianco, which intrigues the palate with the fruit of the pear and quince aromas combined with a salty minerality. The wine tickles the tongue and goes on to deliver a persistent aftertaste.
