Attems Sauvignon Blanc 2020 (90 WS)
“Fresh and floral, this balanced, light-bodied white layers hints of chive blossom and Thai basil with white peach and tangerine fruit flavors. Open-knit and tangy on the stony finish.” – A.N.
Venezia Giulia IGT
Attems Sauvignon Blanc, like others from the region, remains a hidden treasure. The wines can be compared in fruit ripeness to Sancerre, with a more intense bouquet as well as a lusher weight and texture. Attems shows how the value of quality-driven, artisanal producers can be extraordinary.
Attems is one of the most historic producers in the northern Italian region of Friuli, with a winemaking heritage dating back nearly a millennium. Attems wines have a decidedly Friulian character: fresh, full of flavor and elegant, they respect the singularity of the unique terroir of a region ripe for discovery.
