Sauvignon DOC Collio
Data Sheet Contact us
From small bunches, yet very demanding ones concerning cultivation conditions, comes a wine that entrusts its destiny to expert connoisseurs. Sauvignon grape ripens late and must be harvested when its peculiar acidity is still intact, but not such to compromise a successful outcome. It is an aromatic grape that, when turned into wine, can be distinguished for its “uncommon” yet typical aromas.
Colour: light straw yellow.
Nose: a harmony of intense varietal aromas that reminds of passion fruit, peach, sage and nettle in a lightly aromatic hint.
Taste: to the palate, it appears well-balanced and full-bodied, with a fresh and slightly herbaceous aftertaste and a graceful and classy persistence.
Method of production: after the destemming a partial cold maceration takes place, followed by a soft pressing. It ferments at a controlled temperature and then continues its evolution in stainless steel tanks with recurrent lees stirring.
Food matching: excellent with lightly perfumed and spicy starters and pasta dishes. It enhances its characteristics also when matched to lobster, spicy or slightly smoked dishes.
Harvest: harvested by hand on the second ten days of September.
Bottle size: 0,75 l.
How to serve: serve at 8°-10°C.
