Note di degustazione
Brilliant straw yellow, the bouquet reveals aromas of wild sambuca and figs with a bare trace of spiciness. On the palate it is refined, decisive, dry and persistent. The prevailing crispness closes with an extremely clean fruity finish.
Excellent as an aperitif, Sauvignon “Sanct Valentin” is the ideal white wine to accompany fish starters with delicate sauces or local cheeses not aged for too long.
Alto Adige Sauvignon DOC “Sanct Valentin” 2017 - San Michele Appiano: Perché ci piace
The result of grape harvests that permit no mistakes and that make no compromises on the quantity produced, Sauvignon “Sanct Valentin” is a white wine of impeccable elegance, fresh, long and dynamic with a sinuous mouthfeel. A wine with such finesse that it can challenge the great Italian whites, the result of painstaking wine making in steel vats and maturing of a very small part in wood. Excellent also all the way through to the finish. It is in the “Sanct Valentin” line that the wine expert Hans Terzer demonstrates all his ability. Using only the best grapes from the municipal area of Appiano elegant complex wines with exquisite hints of minerals, elegant aromas and excellent potential for ageing are created. Every single bottle, whether white or red, is a unique pleasure that demonstrates the constant commitment of the San Michele Appiano Winery to excellent quality. The name is taken from the “Sankt Valentin” aristocratic estate dating from the 15th century where in 1986 the winery was first established, thus creating new standards for the wine producing culture of Alto Adige.
