Description

Caligo: Heart of ice

The Sauvignon Caligo was born on the hills of San Floriano del Collio, at 200 meters above sea level, owned by the Conti Formentini company, between the Isonzo and Judrio rivers, in a terroir famous for the production of quality white wines. Produced entirely from Sauvignon grapes, harvested and selected strictly by hand, Caligo sees an absolute rarity in the vinification process: the grapes are brought to a temperature of 0 ° in order to achieve a partial freezing forming crystals inside the pulp. This process leads to the breaking of the skin, allowing in the crushing phase, a greater extraction of the aromatic substances. The result is a white with a unique, complex and surprising profile that will satisfy your taste experience.

Pale golden yellow and very bright, it has a varietal and herbaceous nose with hints of sage, thyme and tomato leaf, scents of melon and kiwi fruit and more delicate notes of butter in the background. Tasting dominated by almost citrine freshness and right soft component, with a pleasant memory of exotic fruit and a rather long finish and persistence played on minerality.

Perfect with stuffed cuttlefish and vegetable dishes.
