Sauvignon Alto Adige DOC

The down-to-earth one

Immensely rich, yet modest. Advanced in years, yet persistent... Its most prominent attribute? The mineral-rich limestone soil on which Schliff thrives! With its deep roots, this Sauvignon can forcefully penetrate the scrap of earth upon which it grows. This deep-rooted attachment to Mother Earth is just what makes it so surprisingly rich in content – yet at the same time both structured and accentuated.


Sauvignon Alto Adige DOC

Elderflower, mango, gooseberry, grapefruit and delicate herbal aromas harmoniously combined with a touch of flint. Juicy, fine and mineral on the palate with a persistent finish.
