Grape: Sauvignon Blanc (2015)

Producer: Paolo Rodaro

Location: Colli Orientali, Friuli, Italy

 

Why did we choose this wine? 
Our sommelier Paolo has chosen this Sauvignon Blanc off the beaten path to show what the grape is really about, before the additional intensity that the warm climate of New Zealand or colder climate of Sancerre come to play.
