Cascina Zerbetta - Quattrocento 2017
Sauvignon Blanc grown on 'Terra Rossa', a heavy red clay that gives this wine concentration and texture but also a lovely saline edge. Stone fruits mingling with herbal notes and a light flinty toastiness (no oak used). Made by Paolo Malfatti, a Piemonte native who planted his vines on previously unused land in Monferrato in the late 90's. In this picturesque corner of Italy's Northwest, vines grow alongside organic hazelnuts and wild plants.
