On the nose it is medium fruity, with aromas of freshly cut grass, leaves, stems and fig trees to a lesser intensity, it is persistent and harmonious. The greens stand out over the fruits. On the palate it is somewhat astringent with great character and personality, its bitterness is medium and itching appears, but less pronounced. The aftertaste leaves a sensation of fresh lettuce and chlorophyll with vague memories of bitterness.
