A variety originally from France, Sauvignon was introduced into Friuli under the Hapsburgs and became widely planted in the early 20th century. The wine is refreshing and captivating, with a generously wide, distinctive range of aromas, with notes of exotic fruit, yellow pepper, tomato leaf, mint and box hedge notes. Full, crisp acidity and a harmonious balance of fresh asparagus, apple and gooseberry flavours continue well in to long and vibrant mineral aftertaste. It is traditional wine from Friuli. Enjoy as an aperitif or serve with asparagus, vegetable soups, creamed pulses and marinated fish.
