Venezia Giulia, Italy
Pierpaolo Sauvignon Blanc is a beautiful dry white wine gem from the northeast of Italy. The winery of Pierpaolo Pecorari is a typical Friuli farm, located on the plateau of Micro Terrazzo in the Isonzo wine growing region, only 9 miles from the Adriatic sea and 15 miles south of the Julien Alps. The winery is run by Pierpaolo, his wife Alba and their son Alessandro. It is 40 years ago that Pierpaolo planted his first vineyard of Malvasia, overlooking the right bank of the Isonzo River. Like his father before him, he continues to cultivate his vineyards with the most traditional care and very naturally, with no use of chemicals and herbicides. The poor, stony and mineral soil was formed millions of years ago during the Quaternary period from the melting glaciers. Soil of the Gods, near perfect; producing wines that are known and appreciated worldwide for their purity, elegance, minerality and freshness. Complex wines, extremely pleasant to drink and absolutely great when pairing with food.
Pierpaolo Sauvignon Blanc has a beautiful nose of citrus, mineral and floral notes. The long finish is nicely fresh and fruity. Enjoy over the next 3-4 years with grilled branzino, roast chicken, pasta and salads.
