Tasting notes: Powerful sun-stroked vibrant amber color, brilliant and transparent. Swirls around the glass showing off rich, heavy, narrow arches. Exemplary nose, imposing but graceful, refined exuberance with hints of dried figs, dates, ripe apricots, honey and an array of spices. Velvety sweetness, never cloying, seduces the palate accompanied by fabulous flavor of penetrating force.
Food pairing: Wonderful with marzipan desserts like “Cassata Siciliana”, or macaroons. Try sharp pecorino with orange honey.
