Sauvignon is the most sensitive wine, a real challenge for the winemaker. Starting from the care of bunches, often delicate and prone to diseases, to the quality of final glass, with its complex and changing aromas. The secret is that grapes, must and wine must never oxidize thorough all wine making process: in transportation of grapes to the cellar, in maceration, in the press, and not even after fermentation.
Due to the action of yeasts, at a critical point of fermentation the must turns to an almost white color and then the characteristic aromas appear. This is the long-awaited sign that everything went well and all the work done during the year brought its good fruits.

Perfectly balanced by nature, our Sauvignon is a wine with a strong personality, yet always round and fine, never excessive or invasive with its perfumes.
Excellent one year after harvesting, the wine gets further refinement for another couple of years, taking a golden-yellow color and enriching its bouquet with further layers of complexity.
