Tasting Notes:
Crystalline, citrus color with green reflections. Smokey, intensely mineral, it shows citrus fruits and flowers on the surface, under a background of saltiness. Steely dry, it is a wine that speaks transparently about the granite soil it comes from.

Gastronomic suggestions: Grilled or baked fish, shellfish, oysters, sushi, fat cheese.
