Tasting: Attitude offers a nice golden yellow color. The nose is rich, expressive, with notes of exotic fruits (mango, pineapple) and sweet spices. On the palate, it’s a full bodied and fresh wine. The aftertaste is long, slightly oaky, buttered. It’s a great and well balanced wine.
Companion: Attitude has to be paired with a chicken with a cream sauce, lobster, risotto with cepes mushrooms, smoked salmon, matured goat cheese.
