2012 Schiopetto Sauvignon Blanc

So extraordinary is the expression of Schiopetto’s Sauvignon Blanc that he (like most vintners in Friuli) drops the color designation and simply refers to it as “Sauvignon.”  You should, too, because this wine is going to rock your world:

 A single glass will fill the room with aromas of lemon blossom, lime peel, kaffir, flowering white peaches and freshly rained-on granite pebbles.  These elements blend seamlessly to create a wine of extravagant depth and also refined elegance.  The palate is full, with hedonistic levels of fruit contained by a brilliantly cool minerality, which wraps the entire wine down into its 60-second finish. 

Schiopetto’s Sauvignon can be drunk now. But it will also last a decade or more in your cellar, becoming more pleasurable with each passing year.

Date: Wednesday, October 29
Time: 6 pm to 7:30
Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: $35 per person, credited towards a six bottle purchase

We are mostly familiar with French grape varieties – Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, among others.

Yet there are thousands of grape varieties in the world. And Italy alone has 2,000 indigenous varieties!

So why do should we limit ourselves? It’s time to spread our wings and take a trip down the fantastic boot that is Italian wine.  At this tasting we will tour Italy through some its most amazing – and sometimes proudly esoteric – grape varieties!
