Sauvignon Friuli

Sauvignon is a grape originally from the Loire, in France. Its name comes from the word ”sauvage”, referring to the wild vine from which it was generated. This variety gives its best in loose soils, rich of stones and gravel, preferring cool climates with decisive thermal excursions.
The “Magredi” is a place located in the area called Grave Friulana and that is where our Sauvignon has found an ideal environment. Each plant produces just a few bunches resulting in a wine that shows bright green hints. Its distinctive feature is the aromatic polyphony revealing scents of pink grapefruit, tropical fruit and magnolia. In the mouth it is vigorous and vibrant, with a long aromatic persistency that recalls the same fruits. The finish has a pleasant mineral note.
