Sauvignon "BLEU" DOC VILLA RUSSIZ
The king of the wines for the denomination DOC Collio del Friuli, produced by the prestigious winery Villa Russiz. Sauvignon Bleu is produced with 100% Sauvignon, cultivated in vineyards with two main expositions: the ones with north-east orientation give a good aromaticity, while the ones with south east orientation, give the wine structure and richness. As the tradition of the winery requires, the grapes are harvested manually during the fresh hours of the morning. Then, the soft pressing of the entire grapes extracts the must that, in this case, begins a brand-new process. In fact, fermentation and aging of this Sauvignon Blanc are managed in oak barrels for a period that lasts 18 months. Then, the wine is assembled in steel, where it rests for other 4 months before the bottling. It matures for further 8 months in the bottle.
