Il Cascinone Camillona Piemonte Sauvignon Blanc DOC

2017

In a Nutshell

From Araldica's prized hilltop Camillona site - this Sauvignon has ripe fruit with delicate herbaceous characters.

Tasting Notes

A fine, elegant style of Sauvignon with citrus fruit characters lifted by ripe gooseberry and floral notes. Subtle, creamy textures combine with crisp grapefruit flavours on the palate - all balanced by zesty acidity.

Production Notes

Each block is processed separately, being hand harvested in the first ten days of September, chilled, destemmed and crushed. They are pressed to a stainless steel tank for settling for 36 hours. Steel tanks are used for the fermentation to allow for temperature control. The wine is bottled in the following spring.

Producer - Azienda Agricola Il Cascinone

Il Cascinone was acquired by leading Piemonte producer Araldica in 1999 – an exceptional estate in the Monferrato hills which has undergone extensive restoration and replanting. Now around 70ha of the total 102ha are in full production, with the warmer, southwest-facing slopes used to grow Barbera, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon – whilst the northeast slopes are ideal for more aromatic varieties Brachetto and Moscato, along with Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
