Sant'Helena Sauvignon Collio 2018
Fantinel Sauvignon Tenuta Sant'Helena is a Friulian white wine of excellent aromatic and gustatory fullness, coming from Dolegna del Collio and vinified with a prior preferential cold maceration to favor the extraction of aromatic substances. It has a straw yellow color with greenish hues and an aromatic bouquet that smells of banana, melon, citrus fruits and tomato leaf, refreshed by herbaceous puffs.
Sauvignon Tenuta Sant’Helena di Fantinel is an intense Friulian white that expresses all the expressively aromatic strength of the famous white grape variety originating in the Central Loire Valley. Perfect as an accompaniment to crustaceans or well-flavored seafood dishes, it makes it particularly good also alongside fresh eggs and cheeses due to its intense richness of sip, which, together with its marked aroma, makes it highly gastronomic as well as an ideal companion for an original aperitif.
Sauvignon Fantinel was born in the Sant’Helena estate, located in the Collio Goriziano wine area, a few kilometers from the Slovenian border. Here the company vineyards enjoy a soil rich in "Ponca", a layered conformation based on marl and sandstone that make the soil particularly fertile, they are further favored also at an agronomic level by careful clonal research. These vineyards generate a limited but excellent value grape production, easily perceivable in the glass, which distinguishes the Sant’Helena line from the Fantinel winery. This Sauvignon is specifically cold macerated before carrying out alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature in steel tanks, maintaining a fragrant and varietal sensory profile.
Fantinel's Sauvignon Sant Helena comes in glasses with a straw yellow dress, enlivened by bright green shades and expresses a typical, intense and faithfully identifiable aromatic bouquet conveyed by aromas of citrus, banana and melon. The smell continues with enveloping hints of white peach and tomato leaves, refreshed cyclically by pleasant herbaceous puffs reminiscent of green pepper. The sip is full and substantial, with excellent freshness and marked flavor which prolong the tasting in a largely aromatic and velvety finish, with excellent concentration and informal personality.
