Tasting Notes

Abate Nero Domini 2013 is straw yellow and has a fine and persistent beam.

The nose is delicate and complex with notes of lemon curd and patisserie with meringue and marzipan but also raspberry cheesecake. It has a sweet yet refreshing character.

On the palate Domini 2013 is round with notes of lemon curd and marzipan again.

The finish is long and very pleasant.

Green-skinned grape variety used in wine production

Chardonnay is a grape variety with a green skin that is used to make white wine.
