Matteo Braidot Sauvignon Blanc
Elderberry, Green Pepper, Long Finish, Refreshing
Straw yellow with hints of green. The nose reveals notes of grapefruit with slight fragrance of elderberry and green pepper.
On the palate it is fresh and savoury at the same time, with a pleasant long finish.
Matteo Braidot Sauvignon Blanc is lovely to drink on its own although it is a perfect match to an asparagus risotto or any fish course.
For this Sauv Blanc, there is a 50/50 blend of grapes that were genetically cloned from French Sauv Blanc and Sauv Blanc grapes indigenous to Friuli. The result is quite remarkable with wonderfully effervescent, dynamic, and well balanced Sauvignon blanc that will surprise with its freshness. The taste of grapefruit with a light scent of elderberry and green pepper will be a true treat for you.
The harvest for Matteo Braidot Sauvignon Blanc, takes place at the beginning of September. The cold maceration process lasts only a few hours, with soft pressing of the grapes. The fermentation takes place with controlled temperature, at the end of which the wine rests on noble lees until ready for the bottling process.
The Braidot family has dedicated itself to farming in the Fruili wine region of Italy since 1870! Friuli is in the Northeast portion of the country and is known for producing wines of serious quality for the price.
Today the estate covers an area of approximately 247 acres, 4/5 of which are vineyards, while the remaining land is kept as woodland and for vegetable crops.
The wines are made from a careful selection of grapes, with the typical haromas of the lands of Friuli, plain and raffinate wines and elegant at the same time, with respect for traditions.
