Sauvignon

The name Sauvignon in French means “wild plant” and the ampelographic characteristics of the vine are like those of some Lambrusco, for this reason some ampelographers have hypothesized that its area of ​​origin may be Northern Italy. The bunch of Sauvignon is medium-small, cylindrical, winged, compact. The grape is medium, spherical, sometimes oval due to the compression between the berries, with a thick and hard green skin often dotted. The pulp is sweet and slightly aromatic. Sometimes red berry mutants are encountered. Bud break is medium-late, flowering and veraison are medium. It prefers environments with cool and temperate climates, where it produces a greater concentration of pyrazines that gives characteristic aroma of elderberry and tomato leaf. It can withstand a slight aging in the bottle. These characteristics are enhanced in a favourable environment such as at Borgo dei Posseri.
