COLLIO SAUVIGNON

Appellation

D.O.C. Collio

Production Area

The villages of San Floriano, Oslavia, and Cormòns, all in the Collio D.O.C., with respective elevations of 250, 150, and 80 meters above sea level

Grape Varietals

100% Sauvignon

Type of Soil

The Collio’s hilly terrain, formed during the Eocene period, is composed of layers of sandstone and loam rock (limestone and clay) that were once the ocean floor. Today the sea, which is about twenty kilometres (12 miles) away, and the nearby Alps send afternoon breezes over the vineyards, cooling the grapes after a warm day of sun. Proximity to mountains and sea, along with the mineral-rich but poor soils, create the ideal situation for producing complex, well- structured wines that are very age-worthy. These soils are impermeable so rainwater flows off their surface, producing little erosion and preventing standing water

Vine Training System

Guyot

Plant Yield

About 1.5 kilograms per plant

Harvest

All hand picked in the first ten days of September

Winemaking

After harvest, the grapes were separated from the stems. The must and pulp underwent a cold maceration on the skins followed by a light pressing to separate out the skins. Fermentation took place in stainless steel temperature-controlled tanks

Aging

The wine aged on the lees for several months before bottling

Tasting Notes

Golden yellow in color with a tinge of green. The bouquet, accented with hints of sage, pepper, and elderberry, has good intensity and finesse. In the mouth the wine shows a pleasant acidity and bright freshness. It is balanced and well-structured with a long, pleasant finish
