Obtained exclusively from Sauvignon, a French vine cultivated in the region of Sauternes in Bordeaux, introduced into Gorizia in the mid-1800s, where it “achieved superior results to all the other white grapes that had already arrived” said Giovanni Bolle in 1891, “in the most fertile soils, deep with some clay of the hills, Sauvignon had revealed robust vegetation and a constant and regular production.”

A local farm brought it to the fair at Trieste in 1888. Isidoro and Robert Princic acquired Sauvignon in 1978 and have kept the same typology; their most recent plantings date back to 1985. “Characteristic of our Sauvignon are the perfumes, not overly intense, but on the contrary, fine and elegant” that we tend to emphasize.

90pts Wine Spectator – 2017 vintage

“A harmonious, light- to medium-bodied white, layering mouthwatering acidity and a minerally underpinning with a range of green pear, grapefruit zest, chive blossom and white pepper flavors. Drink now through 2023. 2,333 cases made, 300 cases imported.”

Bronze Medal Decanter World Wine Awards 2019 – 2017 vintage

“Attractive passion fruits and herbaceous nose. A rich and intense palate with tropical fruit influence and a smoky finish.”
