Sauvignon DOC Collio Borgo Conventi
This classic expression of Friulian Sauvignon Blanc comes from the north-facing hills of the Sottomonte estate in Buttrio in the Friuli Colli Orientali D.O.C. area. The soils feature the characteristic "ponca": alternating marl and sandstone layers. A cool fermentation preserves the aromas typical of this vine variety, resulting in a fresh and crisp white with scents of citrus fruit, pepper and tomato leaves. It hs light to the palate, but full of flavor, with a nicely mineral, persistent aftertaste. Recommended with light starters, delicate first courses, but also tasty pasta and risotto dishes (with asparagus, etc.). Excellent with fish in general. Serve chilled.
