Sauvignon Blanc is one of the world’s most unique grapes. Rich with fragrant treasures, it is an aromatic ecstasy of flowers, wild fennel, citrus and tropical fruit.
Its unmistakable aroma makes you love it immediately and the warm pleasantness has earned it a strong backing of admirers. The roots, infiltrating the tiny cracks of the land along the Buttrio hills, saturate themselves of a mineral supply of extraordinary character, and its charm vibrates of hints of honeysuckle and white peach.
