Varietal Notes

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.
