This is an organically grown Sauvignon Blanc from the northern Italian region of Friuli-Colli Orientali. Sauvignon Blanc from Friuli has a wonderfully different flavour than those you would find from France or New Zealand. The wine is fuller bodied, creamy with aromas and tastes of bergamot, grapefruit flavours, yellow pepper and sage.

Ronco delle Betulle nestles in the hilly eastern part of Friuli in a subzone called Rosazzo, an estate of approximately seventeen hectares, of which ten are under vine. The hills of Rosazzo benefit from a special microclimate determined by several geographical factors: its proximity to the sea and its altitude. The sea mitigates the climate, the elevation ensures that Rosazzo is well ventilated and well exposed to the sun, whilst the vicinity of Mount Caterina protects the area from the northerly wind. The Vigneron Ivana Adami has a purist wine-making philosophy: that the essential character of the wine derives from the sun, the soil and the area and that typicity should be respected and preserved, never altered. Elegance and freshness are other watchwords; these are wines with keen acidity.
The Sauvignon is grown on marl and sandstone. The grapes are hand-picked and placed in small crates, destemmed and left to soak for a few hours before controlled fermentation. It is then left on the lees with batonnage for four months and aged for a further six months in bottle before release. It is delicious with good structure and acidity with pronounced aromas that recall sage, tomato leaves and yellow peppers.
