OLFACTORY ANALYSIS

Scent/ olfactory sensation: rich, spicy and fruity. Tangerine, lemon leaves, bread crust. Yuzy comes out more after a few, followed by cereals and pepper hints. Jasmine and chamomile, coriander.
Intensity of aroma: intense.

Refinement of aroma: inviting.
GUSTATORY PERCEPTION

Tactile sensation: thin body, creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation.
Intensity of aroma: pretty intense. Soft and fresh acidity, moderate sweetness, very low hop bitterness, more correlated to the citrus peel.
Olfacto- Gustatory sensation/ back aroma:
Taste: even if the body is pretty thin, the aroma is rich, wrap rounding, deep, round. A perfect combination of spiciness (coriander, white pepper) fruitiness (candied orange peel, juicy yuzu, apricot) and maltiness (bread crust, sweet biscuit). Hay, dough/fresh yeast, flowers in middle. Citrusy/ wheat freshness during all the tasting.

Persistence of aroma/ end: medium length. Long-lasting citrusy (tangerine and yuzu) and coriander finish. Dry.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: I love this special Italian Blanche. I adore the intensity and the thin character of this great psycho Italian Blanche.

VEG FOOD PAIRING: cow cheeses (not too mature) served with yellow stone fruit jam (hey: apricot cheesecake is ok!), main dishes with herbs,
