Bouquet: Delicate, harmonious and complex. Fruity and floral tones.

Palate: Fruity and smooth,  elegant, mineral and long at the finish.

Serving temperature: 8 - 10° C

Aging: The Contrada 2021 will reach its full expressive potential beginning in spring 2022 and will maintain its character through 2025 and beyond if properly cellared.
