Shades of yellow and green with bright aspect. It's a wine that shows great character, with mineral and smoked aromas very present. “Os Xistos Altos” have also has fresh aromas of white flowers and fruits but also juniper, one of our local plants. In the mouth this wine is “salty” and mineral very characteristic of Rabigato. It’s elegant and complex, with concentration and firm acidity from the entrance to the end and finishing with great persistence. Great ageing potential.
