Sauvignon Blanc Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT

The Bollini story began in 1979, when Neil and Maria Empson
decided to create their own label in the Alpine foothills of Friuli and
Trentino. Their goal was to showcase the excellence and consistency of
international varieties grown in the cool northeastern regions, while
keeping the prices affordable.

A classic in the Dolomites, Sauvignon Blanc has found growing
conditions similar to those in its original terroir in
southern France. This grape performs best on sunny hillsides where
soils are rich in gravel.
