Its fresh and fruity aromas include notes of citrus fruit, grapefruit, blooming elderflower and pepper. The deep gravel of the Mantele growing area provides our Sauvignon Mantele with spiciness and body. Cool nights and hot days encourage its aromatic amplitude and fresh structure. This wine is an inspiring aperitif and goes along well with starters, vegetable-based dishes and, at an advanced age, with asparagus.

The Mantele vineyard is located at the center of the small village of Nals in the Etsch (Adige) river valley. On the 500-feet deep debris cone, consisting of 30% weathered porphyry and 70% chalky gravel, hot days and cool nights favor the cultivation of our Sauvignon vines.
