Appearance: The wine presents a bright and clear appearance, with a pale straw color, reflecting its youthful character.

Aroma: The nose is greeted with a delightful bouquet of lemon, green apple, and a hint of floral notes. There’s also a trace of sea breeze-like minerality, adding complexity and depth to the wine's aroma.

Palate: On the palate, the Vermentino showcases a vibrant acidity and a refreshing crispness. Flavors of citrus, particularly lemon and grapefruit, dominate, accompanied by a subtle herbaceousness and a saline minerality.
