Sauvignon Colli Orientali Friuli DOC

Tasting Notes

Sauvignon has been grown successfully in the western hills of Friuli for quite some time: because of the area’s unique microclimate, this grape is capable of appropriately expressing its intense aromatic nature and the hilly terrain gives the wines a pleasant mineral feel.

Torre Rosazza Sauvignon opens with linden notes, followed by fruity citrus scents of grapefruit, ending with delicate boxwood notes. Savory, markedly aromatic and refreshing with a long, intriguing mineral note on the finish. Splendid when enjoyed as an aperitif, it matches well with savory seafood dishes and first course, cold-cuts and herb-filled cheeses.

Torre Rosazza is the top winery in the Le Tenute di Genagricola portfolio. With 90 hectares of prime vineyards on two splendid, naturally-terraced amphitheaters enjoying permanent sunshine, Torre Rosazza is known for it beautifully elegant white wines.
