Livio Felluga – Sauvignon
30 in stock
The color is a straw yellow with light green hues, full, luminous and fresh. The nose is intense, typical, elegant and articulated. The richness of aromas highlights fruit with blackcurrant, passion fruit and white melon; flowers with Lantana, elderberry and orange blossom; spices with chili and ginger; and freshness with oregano, marjoram and mint leaves. Varietal notes of boxwood and tomato leaves blend with subtle citrus hints of lime and grapefruit.
The palate is ample, fresh, rich and balanced. The perfume complexity is well preserved in the taste. Lime and sage fuse with the explosion of tropical and ripe fruit. Great freshness, pleasant savoury notes and balanced acidity. Long and progressive with mineral hints in the finish, remarkable persistence.
Excellent as an aperitif, sauvignon is also an outstanding partner for asparagus, vegetable soups, legume soups and marinated fish. Best served between 10°C and 12°C.
“Hints of baked apricot and pineapple are layered with creamy lemon curd and pastry cream notes in this sleek, well-knit white, with minerally smoke and stone notes emerging to linger on the finish. Drink now through 2024.”
“Aromas of green papaya, lemon grass, dried herbs and crushed stones. It’s medium-to full-bodied with tangy acidity and a waxy texture. Concentrated and layered with a spiced, mineral finish. Drink or hold.”
