Vich Sauvignon

Trentino Doc

Selections from Cantina Lavis stem from the “wine zoning project” that has represented the Cantina’s underlying philosophy for over 30 years. These unique wines are products of excellence grown in selected areas, in particularly suitable vineyards. This Sauvignon is the best expression of the typical zones where these vines are grown. Straw-yellow in colour. To the nose, it is initially complex, although not pungent, with notes of gooseberry, mango and sliced exotic fruit, predominantly pineapple. The taste is savoury, almost salty. The lingering acidulous core accompanies the entire tasting experience. The firm harmonious structure leaves a flavourful note of exotic fruit and green mint in the finish.
