Andriano

Andrius Sauvignon Blanc Alto Adige DOC

    • Description :

      The grapes for Andrius are selected from 30-year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines. The grapes are handpicked and selected and then fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless tanks. The cool summer breeze and late afternoon shade mean that the grapes in this parcel need 2 weeks more than other areas to reach maturity. This microclimate is partially the reason for the intense aromas and freshness in this Sauvignon Blanc making Andrius a truly successful interpretation of this varietal. After fermentation the wine rests on the lees for 6 months partly in stainless steel tanks (70%) and partly in big wooden barrels (30%).

      Tasting notes :

      This wine is a light straw-yellow with greenish hues. An intense bouquet on the nose of apricot, green grass and elderflower with a hint of vanilla making a well-structured wine on the palate with wonderfully-balanced acidity and a long satisfying finish. Strong and vibrant, not unlike the ancient Roman for which it is named.
