Sauvignon Blanc Vigneti Delle Dolomiti IGT

italian market only

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.
