Friuli is famous for Sauvignon Blanc and Meroi is easily perched at the top of the A list. This wine is created from fruit located in the Dominin vineyard which enjoys full sunny southeast exposure and fresh cooling evening breezes. This combination along with the rich Buttrio terroir creates the perfect recipe for vivacious and intensely mineral Sauvignon Blanc with lush tropical fruit notes with savory cut dried lavender, rosemary and lemon basil reflections.

Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Vineyard: Vigna Dominin

Age of vines: 30 years

Refinement: Aged for 11 months in 50% new barrique

"The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc balances the intense spiciness of Sauvignon with the heady and rich style of Meroi. Lemon oils and wild herbal tones come together with hints of ground ginger. This is round in texture, yet with a vibrant acid balance that communicates elegance with green citrus-tinged orchard fruits and penetrating spice. I love the contrast of salty and sweet. This tapers off long and staining, leaving a lime twang and a residual bump of acidty that keeps the expression fresh. The 2019 colors nicely within the lines of balance." -91 Points, Eric Guido - Vinous
