Ronco del Gnemiz Colli Orientali del Friuli Sauvignon 'Peri' 2016

Ronco del Gnemiz is one of Friuli’s most exciting producers, crafting wines under the oversight of Serena Palazzolo, all over the viticultural spectrum. The winery’s meticulous use of barrel fermenting, as well as precise attention to detail, has garnered much attention from the international market. ‘Peri’ is one of the winery’s few single-vineyard Sauvignon Blancs, full of exotic aromatics and bracing acidity. Stellar example of what the grape can do in Friuli; pair with salads and sushi.

Sauvignon Blanc

Zippy aromatic vigorous white most readily associated with France (Sancerre; Pouilly-Fumé; Bordeaux Blanc) but truly a world-beater thanks to its citrusy grip and telltale herbaceous aroma.
