Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT
A pilgrim of the world successfully cultivated in both old and new wine regions, Sauvignon Blanc has adapted also to the climate of Trentino Alto Adige. Together with Cabernet Franc is the parent to Cabernet Sauvignon, which was created from a spontaneous field crossing in Bordeaux, probably in the 18th century. That would already be enough to place it on top of the pyramid of the greatest international wine variety. Its intense and easily recognizable flavor has captured the attention of many consumers. Descriptor typically includes gooseberries, asparagus and many others “herbaceous” aroma (Methoxypyrazines). Our search for the authenticity of this variety has led us to the creation of Blanc.
