Country: Piedmonte, Italy
Tasting Notes: Monferrato proved to be an excellent area for fragrant and fruity wines, where beside the most intense reds, white grapes are grown to produce long-lasting, fragrant and aromatic wines. This Sauvignon fully shows the character of its terroir in the nose and mouth; however, although the wine is made in purity (100% single grape varietal), it doesn’t present too much of the intense acidic aromas that are typical of the varietal. On the other hand, it can be recognized thanks to its scents of apricot, pineapple, rosewood, gooseberries, iris, fresh mint and citrus peel. The palate is creamy and fresh thanks to the balanced acidity and savouriness typical of the terroir of origin. Does not age in wood and expressed its best qualities two or three years after bottling.
