Friuli Colli Orientali. DOC

 

Grapes
Sauvignon

Description
Wide and balanced, it is a fresh and captivating wine with unmistakable and multiple aromas of fruit and mint.
Sauvignon is an important grape variety of French origin, originating in the Loire Valley, whose name derives from the word “savage”, i.e. wild. Introduced into Friuli Venezia Giulia during the Habsburg domination in the 1880s, it has become a wine of authentic Friulian tradition. As far back as 1891, it was said that the Sauvignon Blanc grown in sandstone-marl soils (ponca) had “A robust vegetation and a mediocre, but constant and regular production (...) When drunk, it showed a fineness of flavor and fragrance and an ensemble so harmonious and at the same time generous and distinct, that it was classified as the first white wine of our province.”

Organoleptic description
Straw yellow color with greenish hues.
Intense, elegant and typical bouquet. The varietal notes of boxwood and tomato leaves blend with delicate citrus hints of lime and grapefruit.
The taste is wide, fresh and balanced. To the palate great correspondence with the aromas, sapid, fresh with a fair balanced acidity.
