Monviert Sauvignon 5L

D.O.C. (Controlled Designation of Origin) Friuli Colli Orientali

Sauvignon is a white grape variety from the Bordeaux area, very common in the wine world. In Friuli it has found extremely favourable soil and climate conditions in the hills. It is here, in fact, that Sauvignon gives excellent results in terms of complexity, taste-olfactory balance and longevity and has an excellent, characteristic aroma.

Vinification

The harvested grapes are delicately destemmed; subsequently there is a brief maceration in a pneumatic press for 4/6 hours at a controlled temperature of 10° C.

Soft pressing follows and the must thus obtained is clarified by decanting.

The vinification continues with the alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature (16-18° C) in stainless steel containers. The wine is then aged for 3-4 months in stainless steel tanks, taking particular care in the preservation of the "fine lees", with frequent bâtonnage (stirring).

Description

Pale straw yellow wine with soft greenish reflections. The intense, rich, non-cloying scent is reminiscent of yellow pepper, banana, melon, sage. The taste is dry and nervous, but at the same time soft, warm, velvety, elegant, pleasantly aromatic and with a good structure.

Serving suggestion

Excellent as an aperitif, it goes well with spicy dishes that can compete with its aroma. Also perfect with blue or medium-aged cheeses and lake or lagoon fish. Great wine with shellfish, scampi, lobster.
