The Sauvignon Blanc Collio DOC from Aziende Agricole Livon radiates straw yellow to gold colours in the glass, always with slightly greenish reflections. The intense and characteristic bouquet is wonderfully balanced and smells of peppers, melons and tropical fruits, a fan of perfectly harmonizing aromas. On the palate, this Sauvignon Blanc from the Collio presents itself pleasantly dry, of good structure, lush and full-bodied. The finish is elegant and long lasting.
Vinification of Sauvignon Blanc Collio DOC by Livon
In the vineyards of the municipality of Dolegna del Collio, the Sauvignon grapes for this white wine grow on marshy-loamy soil. Harvested by hand, the grapes mash for eight hours at cold temperature in the horizontal press, then the must is clarified by natural decantation. The fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 18° C. After fermentation, the wine thus obtained remains in the same containers at constant temperature for about 5 months. Finally, the wine is bottled, where it matures for a certain time before being sold.
The Sauvignon Blanc Collio from Livon can be stored for 4 to 5 years.
