Sauvignon Friuli Colli Orientali DOC 2021
Marls and sandstones of Eocene origin better known as "ponca"
It all began in the sixties, when grandfather Min and then father Livio started a story that still lives on in Massimo and Marco Zorzettig's Tunella, guardians, together with their mother Gabriella, of more than fifty years of family tradition. In the Tunella of today live together the present and the memory, the desire to experiment and the highest traditions of the Colli Orientali del Friuli: a present that day after day builds its future.
Our winery is called Tunella since 2002: the new name, which replaced the previous Livio Zorzettig, is a toponym which indicates a farmhouse and a hill located near the winery, among meadows and vineyards surrounded by the sweet landscape of Colli Orientali.
Although Tunella is a company with a long history, we have never abandoned the maniacal attention that distinguishes every little winemaker when he works in his vineyard. It is not by chance that our philosophy is "to do little in order to do better": this is the only way we can offer something of excellent quality and at the same time absolutely unique and personal.
Inside every Tunella bottle there are the earth, the sun, the rain, the wind: because wine collects everything it receives. And because we want those who will come after us to enjoy the same flavors and scents, we pay attention to the sustainability of production.
Il Sauvignon è un vino bianco friulano con cui la cantina La Tunella interpreta magnificamente gli aspetti più classici e tipici di questo rinomato vitigno internazionale a bacca bianca.
Lively and brilliant straw yellow, with evident greenish reflections.
It has an intense and persistent bouquet which is typically varietal. There are scents of great intensity and fineness, with typically vegetal sensations of sage and tomato leaf, which mix with fruity and delicate notes such as melon and yellow bell pepper. Freshness and aromas that we find in the mouth, to exalt a fresh and dry taste, in a perfect balance. Intense and enveloping, it closes with a long aromatic persistence.
Cryomaceration at 4°C for 36 hours and fermentation in steel for 30-40 days at controlled temperature
