Livio Felluga

Sauvignon

DESCRIPTION

A variety originally from France, Sauvignon was introduced into Friuli under the Hapsburgs and became widely planted in the early 20th century. The wine is refreshing, with a generously wide, distinctive range of aromas, with bell pepper, tomato leaf, mint and box hedge notes.
WINE PROFILE  
Variety: Sauvignon
Denomination: Colli Orientali del Friuli
Designated zone: D.O.C.
Area of production: Rosazzo
Soil type: Marl and sandstone flysch of Eocene origin
Grape: Sauvignon
Vine training system: Guyot
Pest control: Low environmental impact integrated pest management
Harvest period: First ten days of September
Harvest method: Manual
Vinification: The bunches were carefully destemmed and left to macerate for a short period. Next, the fruit was soft crushed. The must obtained was then allowed to settle. The now-clarified must fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, where it matured for about six months.
Ageing: After fermentation, the wine was left on the lees in the stainless steel containers for six months. Bottling took place in March 2006. The bottled wine was aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for a minimum of two months.
Sensory characteristics:
Appearance: straw yellow with greenish hues.

Nose: varietal, complex, refined, notes of pink grapefruit, pineapple, yellow pepper, a hint of tomato leaf and boxwood integrated in Mediterranean spices.

Palate: intense, full-bodied, fat; good acidity, complex and intense varietal flavours, long aftertaste.

Serving suggestions: Excellent as an aperitif, Sauvignon is also an outstanding partner for asparagus, vegetable soups, creamed pulses and marinated fish.
Serving temperature: 12 - 14 °C
