Sauvignon Blanc DOC Alto Adige
Close your eyes, sniff the glass and imagine yourself in the midst of a freshly-mown meadow…
The pronounced freshness of our Sauvignons is a consequence of its unique single location, 500 metres above sea level, while our winemaker knows how to emphasise the aromas of fruits and flowers, storing the wine in stainless steel vats.
Straw-yellow with greenish reflexes, the wine features aromas of grapefruit, peach, freshly cut grass, tomato leaves and nettles. It is moderately heavy, juicy and fresh on the palate with a pleasant mellowness and a good length.
Our Sauvignon pairs best with fine fish dishes, salads and vegetable dishes, antipasti and fresh goat’s cheese.
Pale yellow with a light, greenish hue.
Fresh, fruit-heavy flavour of pink grapefruit and juicy peach, combined with elegant herbal notes of freshly cut grass.
