Classic aromas of Sauvignon Blanc from Friuli: Peppers, tomato leaf with varied sweet and enveloping characteristics. Fresh and lively with lingering persistence.
Ideal as aperitif, great with soups, cold cuts and savory fish dishes. An interesting match with Eastern and Middle Eastern cuisine.
If you enjoy the lively, bracing character of Sauvignon Blanc but are weary of over-powered styles from the Southern hemisphere, then take a taste of this example from Friuli. Italy has long been an alternative home to some of the world’s most prominent wine grape varieties – and this Sauvignon Blanc is no exception. Limestone rich soil satisfies the grapes’ call for minerals, the microclimate assure a bracing and gently lingering acidity.
