Sauvignon

Sauvignon from Friuli is a hidden treasure. Making and maturing quality Sauvignon blanc require a lot of care: in both vineyard and winery. Thanks to Friuli’s limestone-rich clay and gravel soils, our Sauvignon is not only aromatic but also remains mineral and slightly savory. It is full bodied with elegant as well as vibrant and long acidity.
