SONORO SAUVIGNON BLANC
TENUTA DI ANGORIS


Sonoro-Sauvignon-Blanc THE WINE & THE REGION
Grape Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Tenuta di Angoris, home of Sonoro wines, is the oldest winery in Friuli and was given to Locatello Locatelli, the original owner, by the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire in 1648. The 630 hectares of fields and woods are situated between the Alps, which separate Italy from Austria, and the Adriatic Sea. The vines and Villa Locatelli, the historic villa located on the property, have been expertly tended to for hundreds of years by generations of Locatelli men and women.

The beautiful and expressive characteristics found in Sonoro wines can be credited to the origin within Friuli: Isonzo. The vines enjoy the unique Isonzo microclimate with warm, sunny days and brisk, chilly nights that help maintain balanced acidity and sugar levels in the grapes. The maritime climate allows for just the right amount of rainfall in Isonzo and the stony soils of pebbles and red clay, rich in aluminum and iron oxides, also contribute to the unique zest and flavor of Sonoro.

The prestige and history of Tenuta di Angoris and the exceptional environment in which the grapes are expertly cared for make Sonoro the pride of Friuli.

THE STYLE
Sonoro Sauvignon Blanc pleases the senses in the most delightful and palpable way. While a light-bodied Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoro’s freshness and lingering minerality provide a perfected structure and balance that you will not find in most Sauvignon Blancs. On the nose, it is intense and aromatic with overtones of green bell pepper, tomatoes and rosemary, with notes of grapefruit and white peach. On the palate, this wine is elegant, warm and well-balanced.

PAIRING NOTES
Sonoro Sauvignon Blanc lends itself well to dishes with fresh herbs and greens, such as fennel, spinach, watercress, arugula, and most green leaf salad vegetables. The most ideal pairing for this wine is seafood, shellfish and sushi; but this structured and well-balanced wine allows one to be creative. Try this wine with spices, chili pastes and curry-based recipes. Sonoro also pairs well with grilled or smoked white meats, such as pork, chicken or veal.
