Origin

The Sauvignon is the youngest offspring in our cellars. It was planted in the year 2001 by one of our best winegrowers in Missiano near Appiano and in 2003 the first grapes came to the winery.

Vinification

The control of the fermentation temperature is even more important for Sauvignon than it is for most of the other varieties, as well as avoiding malolactic fermentation and oxidation processes. After fermentation at 19°C, the Sauvignon maturates in stainless steel tanks.

Description

It is well known that Appiano is very suitable for the cultivation of Sauvignon. Our Sauvignon is characterised by sapidity, freshness, the fine aromaticity and its typical notes of paprika and elder. The Sauvignon is good as an aperitif, with not too heavy starters and most fish dishes. Sauvignon combined with asparagus is a speciality in the region. Therefore the Sauvignon is also called “Spargelwein” (Wine for Asparagus).
