Villa Locatelli Sauvignon Blanc
At the gates of Cormòns, in the hamlet of Angoris, the heart of the estate and the Villa Locatelli welcome visitors with an embracing row of cypress trees. The park, the symmetries of the vineyards, the colors of the autumn or the yellow enlightening rapeseed blossom in spring are all a delight to the eyes and soul. The 120 hectares of vineyards of Tenuta di Angoris reveal their space into three zones AOC neighboring region: Isonzo del Friuli, Collio and Friuli Eastern Hills, areas protected from cold winds from the north-east through the Alps and influenced by the Adriatic sea breezes that whisper from the south.
Pale green in color with golden highlights; Intense, aromatic with overtones of green bell-pepper and tomato leaf, grapefruit and white peach, minty, thyme, rosemary, and marjoram.
A fresh wine with a light body and lingering minerality goes well with ham and melon, aperitif, and smoked salmon.
