Sauvignon Blanc "Vigne Orsone" DOC Bastianich
This is the best production made by the Bastianich winery by using the Sauvignon Blanc grapes. A relevant help comes from the weather conditions of the Friuli hills which are perfect for the cultivation of these grapes which are aromatic and complex. Locally it is called the “secret weapon” because it can compete at high level with the great traditional French wines. It is fresh, dry, with a clear aromatic flavor of the Sauvignon. It is full and round, out of the common with a persistent and pleasant aftertaste. This wine is produced with 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The wine making process takes place in stainless steel tanks and late the 50% of the product passes through the malolactic fermentation under temperature control. The refinement is on lees for 6 months with weekly bâtonnage.
