Producer Note
The Collio region, a strip of hills bordering Slovenia, is reputed to have one of Europe's
most privileged micro-climates for white wines, while the red wines are also noted for
their appeal. Founded by Eugenio Collavini in 1896, this family owned house is now run
by Manlio Collavini together with his three sons. Located in Udine, they were among the
first to vinify Ribolla Gialla-an ancient local variety- and to implement new winemaking
technologies. Collavini prides itself on its clean, modern style wines, while still retaining
the traditions and grape varieties native to the area. Collavini's 'Broy' is a multiple Tre
Bicchieri winner and is recognised as one of Italy's top white wines. As keen dog lovers,
the Collavini’s very first pet Dachshund 'Ribolla' is portrayed on the label.
Vineyard
The vineyards are located in DOC Collio, in San Floriano del Collio, Cormòns and
Gorizia. The cordon spur and Guyot trained Sauvignon Blanc vines are planted at a
density 5,000 vines per hectare and yield 90 quintals per hectare. The soils on the hilly
region are known as ‘Ponca’, which rich in sandstone with alternating layers of marl,
which produces aromatic wines. The soils offer a good balance of water retention to
nourish the vines throughout the summer and ample drainage if required. Gentle sea
breezes come from the Adriatic Sea which keep the vines dry and healthy, while the
Alps protect the vineyards from cold, northerly winds. Warm days and cool nights offer
the perfect combination to allow slow maturation of the grapes, maintaining beautiful
balance between natural acidity and sugar levels.
Winemaking
Classic winemaking techniques were used, with low temperature skin contact
overnight. The grapes were gently pressed, followed by fermentation which took place
in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and lasted approximately two weeks. The
wine remained on its fine lees until the maturation was complete.
Tasting Note
An elegantly styled Sauvignon showing great typicity and minerality, with delicate hints
of yellow peppers, sage and melon. The palate is fresh, full bodied and confidently
aromatic, with a long finish.
