Attems Sauvignon Blanc 2020 (91 VM)
The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc impresses with a spicy mix of lemon oils, crushed stone and dusty dried flowers. It’s soft-textured with a zing of zesty acidity that nicely motivates the tropical citrus tones within, as chalky minerals collect toward the close. This tapers off with remarkable length, leaving a staining of candied lime, kiwi and hints of sour melon. Attems packed a lot of character into this nicely balanced Sauvignon Blanc.

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.
