Traluce
I.G.T. Umbria Sauvignon
This wine sprang from the desire to link up with one of the most interesting grape varieties that exist. Traluce was immediately successful beyond all expectations. A variety of great complexity, Sauvignon has found an ideal habitat in our soil, thanks also to the right agronomic choices. The vinification is meticulous, attention to detail here being categorically imperative, but today, after 20 years of experiment, we can say that the challenge has been met. Its colour is pale yellow with vivid greenish tints, and its full bouquet goes from the fruitiness of pink grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit to the more mineral notes of sage and flint. It is fruity on the palate, it has an acid freshness but also a very soft smooth final taste.
Accompaniments
Perfect as an intriguing, exotic aperitif, Traluce can be served successfully with vegetable dishes in general, and particularly asparagus. Recommended temperature: 12° C
