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 and captivating, with a generously wide, distinctive range of aromas, with notes of exotic fruit, yellow pepper, tomato leaf, mint and box hedge notes. It's a traditional wine from Friuli.

Nose: varietal, complex, refined, penetrating, evident notes of tomato leaf, boxwood, sage, mango; hints of red pepper and ceder, integrated into balsamic notes of Mediterranean spices.

Serving suggestions: Excellent as an aperitif, Sauvignon is also an outstanding partner for asparagus, vegetable soups, creamed pulses and marinated fish.
