Sauvignon IGT Lazio
Variety origin: the name derives from the French word sauvage (wild). Native to the Bordeaux region, thanks to its adaptability, it is cultivated in many regions of the world. The best results are obtained in particularly vigorous areas, where the clusters are protected by the leaves and therefore less exposed to the sun.
Harvest period: third decade of August.
Vinification system: in white after short cold maceration.
Malolactic fermentation: prevented through the cold, to safeguard the varietal aromas.
Aging: 3 months of aging in steel on the fine lees.
Bottles produced: 2550
Exclusive Viticultural Practices: protect the grapes from the sun avoiding late defoliation. Avoid using copper-based products, against downy mildew, from veraison onwards. Collection in advance of the norm. Protection against oxygen during harvesting and transport of the grapes to the winery.
Exclusive Oenological Practices: total protection against oxygen, through the use of dry ice or other inert gases. Aging on total lees, kept in suspension, daily.
