Salento (Apulia)
Sauvignon Blanc
White Wine White Wine Score:

Salento (Apulia) The wine shows an intense straw yellow color and nuances of straw yellow, very transparent. Intensity of aromas is not very high, however they are elegant and of good personality. Aromas are mainly oriented to fruit such as citrus fruit, bread crust, yeast, honey, pear and grapefruit. The attack in the mouth is slightly bitter and crisp, a sensation which is balanced by alcohol. The finish is persistent with evident flavors of pear, honey and grapefruit. This wine is produced with temperature controlled fermentation in steel containers.
