Tasting notes by Tom Wordsworth:  One of the most highly distinctive Sauvignon Blancs I have tasted: a multitude of fruits burst onto the palate from lime, grapefruit, green apple, gooseberry to honeydew melon and white peach. This is married with a cluster of green notes born from grass, asparagus, dill and finally chalk to provide an elegant finish. Clean and crisp varietal flavours are maintained here from stainless steel vinification. Tantalising high acidity to be enjoyed young and fresh.

Serving suggestions: Fish carpaccio and crustaceans enhance its aromatic characteristics.

An international grape variety, it finds in the area one of the favorite places of choice thanks to the very frequent daily temperature variations. The fresh and dry soil enhances its elegant characteristics and the yellow color tending to greenish is one of the peculiarities of the area.

Vinification in steel gives a wine in which elderberry, grapefruit and peach flowers are the main stamp. Fish carpaccio and crustaceans enhance its aromatic characteristics.

It's name, Busse Ben, means bacia bene (Italian) or kisses well in the Friulan dialect.  "A delicate Sauvignon Blanc to be enjoyed with your eyes closed"

Gori Agricola

Gori Winery is situated in Nimis, known as Castrum Nemas since the 6th Century, in the northernmost point of the “Colli Orientali” of Friuli. The estate’s vineyards cover 12 hectares on the rolling hills.

Piero Gori, founder of the winery, in 2009 began the realization of one of his dreams. The love and the passion for his homeland inspired the will of combining innovation with tradition. The meticulous attention towards quality and the respect and valorization of the surrounding environment create a modern, family run, winery.

The Gori family

The vineyards were planted in 2009 and 2010 with a specific objective: to enhance in the best way the peculiarities of the individual vineyards in the area.

The mountains defend the area from the cold northern winds and the proximity of the plain favors the nocturnal temperature variations, essential for the development of grape aromas.

The care and attention during the phases of production ensure that the grapes produced enhance their characteristics to the maximum.

The entire winecellar is the most modern and innovative one could conceive; built on three levels, it exploits the gravitational force and avoids unnecessary stress on grapes and wines.

After the harvest, the grapes arrive at LEVEL ONE where the de-stemming phase takes place, a technique used to separate the grapes from the stalk.

The grapes, at this point de-stemmed, are lowered to the lower level using the force of gravity in order to avoid unnecessary stress that could compromise quality.

The very important phase of temperature-controlled vinification takes place at LEVEL ZERO.

On this level there is also the bottling plant.

At the underground level there is the aging cellar, dug inside the hill which exploits the natural level of humidity that allows the wine to complete its maturation.

Still using the natural force of gravity, the wine is transferred inside the French oak barrels. The 500 liter tonneau and the 15 to 40 hectoliters barrels help the wine in its maturation to bring it to express the best quality.
