COLLIO SAUVIGNON

A blend of two bases from vineyards with different exposure and clones.
The bouquet is not overly aromatic but favours greater complexity and elegance with a rich array of citrus and tropical fruits.
Essential flavour, full and tasty, making this a particularly satisfying table wine.

BOTTLE SIZE
