Bortoluzzi Sauvignon Venezia Giulia IGT
100% Sauvignon. Light straw yellow with verdant hues. The bouquet charms with notes of bell pepper, peach, and sage leaves endowing it with distinct elegance. Full on the palate, fresh, very appealing, with complex varietal flavors.
“For the Bortoluzzi family sensitivity is important, as is tradition. You must always be forward-looking in order to improve, but without forgetting what history and experience have taught you.“
