Sauvignon Blanc is a French vine, which has found ideal soil and climate conditions in Friuli. Cultivated on hills, it produces small bunches with medium sized fruits. The manual harvest and the soft pressing are followed by a brief period of aeration with no presence of sulfur dioxide. The wine that remains on its yeast for 8 months teases the nose with scents of green peppers, tomato leaves and sage. It confirms the taste sensations and has a good, amalgamated acidity with body and softness and a balanced and fresh finish.
"Cloaked by its own intensity, this needs time to reveal its aromas and flavors of lemon and lemongrass. That tension relaxes after a day of air, the flavors lengthening, held firm by a gripping structure. Grown in predominantly clay soils, this sauvignon possesses cool tannins that serve as the foil to the nervy acidity. The combined effect sends energy coursing through the wine, a motion that seems to define the expression of both fruit and minerality. Built to age five or six years, if not longer."
Wine & Spirits
"Shows aromas of apricot, lemon and apple. Full-bodied and long, offering a superlively palate of fresh acidity and gooseberry, with hints of lemon peel. A crisp, steely style. Drink now. 2,555 cases made."
"The 2006 Sauvignon is a textbook wine. It captures the essence of the cool Capriva micro-climate, with deeply suggestive sage, wet stone, mint and tomato leaf notes that flow from the glass. Medium in body, it offers outstanding persistence and plenty of style. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2009."
