Elegant & complex. Rasins & brioche.

Tasting Notes

Terzavia Metodo Classico 2017 from De Bartoli Estate has a golden colour and a fine and persistent beam.

The nose is complex and evolved with orange candied peel, brioche and vanilla. There are also some jucier notes of dried apricot and rasins.

On the mouth it’s drier than one would expect given the full nose, it’s mineral and citrusy, yet rasins notes are there too to round things up.

The finish is elegant and dry medium long to long.
