Prestigious vintages

Amfora

The wine is crystalline with an intensive golden yellow colour and shades of amber. It's dense and it leaves viscous streaks on the edge of a glass. Its bouquet is intense and refined. The first nose is honeyed, later its fruity aroma of orange peel and dried apple slices prevails, combined with hints of pepper spiciness . The sensation of fruitiness and honeyed taste persist in the mouth. The finish is intense and long, mineral and fresh. A very complex wine. In combination with food it breaks down all the stereotypes : it matches perfectly with a fawn fillet.
