The second fermentation starts with natural yeasts and lasts 150 days in stainless steel tanks where the pressure develops up to 5 bars.TASTING NOTES
Ripe apple, pear, peach along with tropical fruits such as banana and pineapple are accented by floral notes. A well-balanced, pleasant, and harmonious palate with a medium-body and a long, persistent finish.
