SAUVIGNON BLANC, FRIULI, DOC, 2019
 Ronco dei Pini di Novello G. & C. snc




 

Ronco dei Pini’s 35 acres of vineyards are located in the rolling hills of Friuli in the north-eastern part of Italy, bordering Slovania. More precisely the winery lies nestled in the hills between Prepotto and Spessa di Cividale with most of the grapes grown in the DOC area of Collio Goriziano. Ronco dei Pini is owned by Claudio and Giuseppe Novello, who took it over in 1997.

Notes about this wine:
The wine is left on the lees for a period of 6 months,  then allowed to rest in the bottle for two months before release.
Bright yellow in color, it is striking for its elegant bouquet, characterized by herbal notes and a hint of pepper.  The wine is dry and delicate, with nicely balanced acidity.
