Marchesi di Grésy, Langhe Sauvignon Blanc, 2018, Langhe, Italy


A lovely complex Sauvignon, and one of Italy's finest examples of the variety. Great depth and purity. European in style, good minerality and a classy cur grass aroma. Textured, elegant, ripe passion fruit and citrus characteristics. A beautiful white wine, deservedly celebrated.
