Sauvignon Salici

  • Ronco del Gnemiz
  • Friuli Venezia-Giulia, Italy

Method & Production

The fruit for the Sauvignon Salici is grown on 0.6 hectares of the Rosazzo hill vineyards. The vines are trained and pruned using the Guyot system and the grapes are harvested in the first ten days of September. The resulting wine ferments for ten months in 225 litre French oak barriques.

Tasting notes

This gorgeous Sauvignon shows less pungency than expected from the grape. There is a delightful minerality on the palate that gives the wine an interesting savoury, almost salty note to compliment the ripe white fruits and lighter green fruit notes. The wine is warm, rounded and powerful but equally refined with a fresh, focussed acidity. This is a truly fabulous and unique Sauvignon Blanc.
