Winemaker Notes: This wine simultaneously expresses some of the particular characteristics of the Sauvignon vine variety and the typical character of our territory: a Sauvignon with an aroma of elderberry, tomato leaves and peaches, with hints of citrus and a mineral undertone, less spiced and green and more composed and complex in respect to the typical Friuli-Altoatesine notes, with a rich structure and balanced taste, and significant persistent aftertaste. A Sauvignon that is complex, expressive and personal.

Food Pairing: Pair it with appetizers (hearty), first and second courses with vegetables and fish, with light white meats served with vegetables.
