Giocato, Giocato Sauvignon Blanc
Giocato Sauvignon Blanc

 

Tasting Notes: A long-awaited complement to our highly popular Giocato Pinot Grigio, this Sauvignon Blanc is a classically-styled wine from one of Europe’s top appellations for whites, Goriska Brda, near Collio Orientali, Italy. Piercingly clean and bright, its body is taut and linear, with a compelling array of stone fruit and minerals on the palate. Aleks Simcic, the renowned winemaker, achieves a wine with stunning character and quality, and characterized by white floral and nettle notes without ever slipping into the full-tropical end of the Sauvignon spectrum. An opportunity to enjoy a beautiful Sauvignon at a<br />terrific value.
