Venezia Giulia, Italy

Description:

This mouth-filling, organic and biodynamic Italian Sauvignon Blanc from Venezia Giulia possesses a very different profile than examples of this grape you'll find in other parts of the world. Densely concentrated and quite rich in style, this displays gorgeous notes of honey, tangerine, ruby red grapefruit and white flowers, and spends some extended time aging in bottle prior to release. The consulting enologist at Vigne Del Malina is a winemaker at Gravner, the very famous estate in Friuli.
