Pale straw coloured with green hues, a lovely bead and fine mousse. Nose of melons and citrus, green apples, almond and honey. The front palate bursts with dry, delicately flavoured bubbles. A crisp but not overly acid palate supports the bubbles through to the finish. A great aperitivo and ideal accompaniment to oysters, scallops, and crab. Drink young and fresh.
