Obtained exclusively from Sauvignon grapes: a French vine cultivated in the Sauterne region, in the Bordeaux area, introduced in the Gorizia region in the mid-nineteenth century, where it “achieved better results than those reached so far with all the other white grapes vines – said Giovani Bolle in 1891 – in the most fertile, deep and slightly clayey lands of the hills, Sauvignon shows a strong vegetation and a constant and regular production”. A local company brought it to the Wine Fair in Trieste in 1888. Isidoro and Robert Princic have had it since 1978 and have kept the same types of Sauvignon, even with the latest plantings dating back to 1985. “Characteristic of our Sauvignon are the aromas, not excessively intense, but very fine and elegant” they want to underline.
Vineyards from which this wine is produced are Budignacco, Zavognza, Dragica and Ruttars , at an altitude from 100 to 180 meters above sea level.
