Rauscedo. Sauvignon Blanc
Friuli Grave DOP
Grape Sauvignon Blanc
Generous, ripe lime and kiwi fruit aromas with ripe basil and tarragon, tight and mineral with fresh, fresh fig and lemon flavours, a fine structure and long finish. 12.5%
The potential for Sauvignon is excellent in the Grave, meagre soils and a long growing season are exactly what the variety requires. When combined with planting the correct clones at higher density the wine can be truly world class. Rauscedo have a huge vineyard at their disposal and this is a selection from the best sites, the grapes are picked by hand and fermented in temperature-controlled tanks. It is a carbon copy of the work Francesco did at Plozner and the results are superb.
A lovely aperitivo or with vegetable risotto, a fish carpaccio or shellfish.
