Sauvignon
sauvignon
This very old grape variety was introduced to Alto Adige / Südtirol from France at the end of the nineteenth century. It settled in particular in the terraced sites along the Adige River, from Salurn up to Merano. In Alto Adige, Sauvignon Blanc opens up its bouquet that is typical of the variety with slightly “green aromas” of freshly cut grass and gooseberries, producing both crisp, fresh wines and those with a marked intensity.
