Tasting notes
Intense and bright amber colour with tawny shades. The bouquet at the beginning is powerful and varied : from walnut, almond caramel nougat, to strawberry tree honey, to caramel. The fruity aromas are highly articulated with hints of dates, dried apricots and figs, dried and candied citrus fruit, while the spiciness begins with vanilla, cinnamon, clove to of chocolate, toffee, pastry and marzipan. Sweet and soft but fresh in a perfect balance, giving in to an extraordinary elegance. Even the savoury closure contributes to perceiving it dynamic and pleasant. Very long aromas in the aftertaste with hints of jujube, honey, caramel and candied orange peel with chocolate, as well as a precious spicy accent.
