I don't know if it is the warm weather or a damned good wine. I bet the last!
In the glass a pale straw yellow color with green reflections.
On the nose intense aromas of citrus, white flowers and green apple.
On the palate full-bodied ( for a verdicchio! ) intense, tasty, refreshing, good balanced with nice acidity and a slightly bitter finish. Really enjoyable white wine which will also pair great with seafood or chicken.
