Attems Cicinis 2017, Collio, Italy

£29.95

Selected for our ‘guest’ wine range thanks to it’s quality and character. Attems is a name that encompasses the history of wine in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Indeed there is documentation that confirms ownership of land dedicated to viticulture in Collio by the Attems dynasty dating as far back as 1106. The Attems brand is owned and managed by the Frescobaldi family who have 700 years of history of viticulture in Italy. All of their wines show incredible character and elegance. Cicinis, named after a hill in the Collio region, is the finest expression in the Attems range.

Tasting notes

Elegant straw yellow with green highlights, the nose is energetic with notes of thyme, nettles, and sage leaf followed by broom flowers and elderberry with light undertones of delicately spiced vanilla and ginger. On the palate the wine is expressive with fresh citrus and tomato leaf notes. The finish is persistent and dense, with a great balance of richness and zip. In our opinion, this is quite possibly the best Sauvignon Blanc Italy have ever produced.
