Secondary Refinement: At least four months in the bottle
Alcohol content: 16% Vol.
Residual sugars: 130 g /l
Color: Intense golden yellow tending to amber
Smell: refined aromas of orange blossom honey, candied orange peel, dried figs, dates, peaches in syrup, in perfect harmony with delicate evocations of laurel, lemongrass, marjoram, sage, oregano and oriental spices.
Palate: enchanting texture, which unfolds almost "whispering", with the class of its high lineage, expression of the warmth of the Sicilian sun, enriched and crossed by subtle and deep marine and fruity nuances, caressing and disturbing.
Food-Wine Pairings: Sweetness requires sweetness and, therefore, we suggest pairing it with freshly baked apple and raisin strudel, Catalan cream, millefeuille with vanilla mousse, a nice orange tart accompanied by lavender ice cream. Excellent combination with foie gras and savory blue cheeses.
