Tasting Notes

Poggiobello is one of the properties owned by Genagricola in Friuli. Purchased in 1974 with just 12 ha, the estate has grown to 110ha of land of which 90 are devoted to vine growing, all neatly arranged on sun-drenched terraces on the slopes of the Rosazzo Hill, a territory internationally recognized as one of Italy’s best for the production of white wine.

Made with 100% estate-grown grapes (younger vines on the 90-ha property), Poggiobello Sauvignon is straw yellow in color with green reflections. On the nose are aromas of elderberry, sage, and tropical fruit. The palate is soft and full-bodied. Pairs well with omelettes made with aromatic herbs, spinach and ricotta pies, stuffed peppers, eggplant parmigiana, and lobster.
