Sauvignon Blanc

Piemonte D.O.C

THE INFLUENCE OF THE TERROIR

A fresh and mineral taste accompanied by an intense bouquet of white and exotic flowers fully express the characteristics of the Sauvignon blanc. The vines are at the highest point of the Vineyard, cultivated at 540 meters above sea level, which renders a stronger thermal range in August and September.

GRAPE VARIETY

100% Sauvignon blanc

 

VINIFICATION

Crushing, destemming and soft pressing, fermentation at controlled temperature.
 

TASTING NOTES

For Sauvignon Blanc it’s vital to have an optimal maturation not just from a technical aspect but as well from an aromatic aspect. The delicacy of the perfumes and the finding the right balance are easily compromised if the grapes are picked prematurely or harvested too late.  Thus each vine is cured very carefully creating an optimal result with great structure and persistence. The color is a pale straw yellow, clean and luminous. Its bouquet has scents of white flowers as well as typical aromas of Sauvignon blanc including that of the boxwood tree, notes of exotic fruits, especailly pineapple and liche fruit. In the mouth it’s fresh, mineral, and savory. The location of the vines on the high hills with a soil light in limestone makes this sauvignon particularly special and enjoyable.
 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Perfect for something as simple as a savory or salty appetizer or excellent with fish. It also pairs perfectly with any pasta dish with a lighter sauce such as that with vegetables or white meat.
