Compared to the 2011 vintage, the 2012 has a more subtle nose. Opens with notes of eucalpytus and mint, evolving into pink grapefruit and spice, with a light touch of citrus-like bitterness; the tannins are present but well-integrated. An harmonious, balanced wine with elegance, freshness and good length, whose delicate character bears witness to its biodynamic origins.
