Bollini Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Trentino- Alto-Adige, Italy2020 was an important year at Bollini when the wines achieved vegan certification. The property is owned by Maria and Neil Empson, who created their label working in the Alpine foothills of Friuli and Trentino. Their purpose was to showcase the excellence and consistency of noble international varieties in the cool northeastern regions of Italy while maintaining accessible price points. At only 12.5% alcohol, winemaker Franco Bernabei has done a masterful job keeping this flinty dry sauvignon humming along, exposing notes of fig and wild sage with a stream of acid to keep it fresh. Post ferment, the wine is racked and aged on its fine lees for a few months, with b√Ętonnage adding the final touch of creamy textures.Tasted: 17 February 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
