2009 Venezia Giulia Sauvignon Selezione Edi Kante - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Life in Friuli’s Carso is defined by three forces of nature: the ubiquitous gray limestone that covers the landscape, the nearby Adriatic Sea, and the fierce, icy Bora wind that blows year-round. These awe-inspiring natural phenomena give Carso wines a distinct mark of terroir that remains constant across grape variety and vintage. In this cuvée, Sauvignon Blanc is merely a vehicle for the Carso’s trademark minerality and salinity. The Selezione represents Kante’s pick of the best barrels, aged an additional four years in tank after the customary year in neutral wood. Its Sauvignon fruit is ethereal, tender, and delicately citrusy, then delivers a tonic energy with salivating notes of briny sea breeze and stone. This is a grande Sauvignon to reserve for your finest platter of shellfish. –Anthony Lynch
