Originally from the Loire and Gironde areas in France, it was introduced and gained popularity in our area during the eighties, where it is grown in small quantities.
Among our production it is perhaps the grape that best challenges our own whites. This wine is quite possible the one that most interests us in discovering the specific elements required to express the most noble potentials of this variety.
Our Sauvignon grapes are grown in our Sanròc vineyard (at an altitude of approximately 430 metres above sea-level, on the Trento hillside), right next to Gewürztraminer. We macerate it without the skins, for a short time in the press, protected from the oxygen to prevent the aromas from oxidizing, and then allow it to ferment on its lees in non-wooden containers, until we bottle it (around April).
We offer the current year’s vintage but it has good ageing potential.
AROMA: intense and varietal aroma, with characteristic vegetable fragrances.
FLAVOUR: savoury, salty, harmoniously acid, fruity, lingering.
|Best enjoyed at a temperature of 9-12°C.|
|Great as an aperitif, it pairs well with appetizers, asparagus, fish with sauces and mild cheeses.|
