Collio Sauvignon Villa Russiz


This Sauvignon is created by Villa Russiz winery located in prestigious Collio area of Friuli. The white wine is straw-yellow colour with greenish highlights and an extremely aromatic, delicate nose. Expresses notes of fresh exotic fruit such as pineapple, but also peach and sage. Fresh, easy to drink wine with an elegant, velvety flavour. Pairing suggestions: Starters with cured ham, light fish dishes.
Vinification: when fully ripe, the grapes are hand-picked in the coolest hours of the morning. They quickly reach the cellar, where the whole grapes are lightly pressed. The free-run must produced is first decanted, then collected in temperature-controlled fermentation tanks. The wine remains on its fine lees for at least 6 months and is then bottled 8 months after harvesting.

Friuli-Venezia Giulia – Villa Russiz


Villa Russiz was founded on 15 February 1868 with the marriage of Elvine Ritter von Zahony to Theodor de La Tour. Elvine’s dowry, Villa Russiz, turns out to be an area which is still particularly conducive to the cultivation of vines and for producing wines of an exceptional quality.

The wines are part of the Collio controlled nomination of origin: an elegant Sauvignon de La Tour; a Gräfin de La Tour, a refined chardonnay; a Graf de La Tour, a velvety merlot and the Défi de La Tour Cabernet Sauvignon. Les Enfants, the only non-doc exception is a blend of grapes with a name that recalls the estate’s historical commitment within the social sector. In terms of taste, Les Enfants evokes the most characteristic nuances of the Collio territory thanks to its Pinot Banco and Pinot Grigio grapes, and a small percentages of Ribolla and Sauvignon are added to complete its harmony and freshness.
