Shining in gold green shades. This wine's complexity is incredible, as well as the magical sensations that derive from it. The olfactory characteristics are those typical of Sauvignon in cold climates: intense and elegant aromas of elderberry, gooseberry, tomato leaf, green pepper, boxwood and cedar, secondly enriched with citrus nuances of lime and grapefruit, mineral flint tones and light smoky notes. In the palate the wine follows and amplifies the scents perceived by the nose, in particular the uniqueness of tomato leaf, the freshness of citrus fruits and the acidity and minerality typical of Collio, offering a pleasant sip with persistent intensity, full-bodied and creamy but also sharp and well-balanced. The finish is long, velvety and soft. Ronco delle Mele represents the desire to produce a very typical and savory wine, impeccable for precision and style. To be paired with eggs with truffles, crepes with porcini mushrooms, lobster ravioli, grilled prawns, risotto with asparagus and seafood: the list of dishes that would be perfect with this wine could be infinite. In general, it goes well with everything, especially with appetizers, delicate soups, shellfish and fishes with sauce.

Fresh and zesty, the 2017 Collio Sauvignon Ronco delle Mele is probably the nicest sample of this bunch from Venica & Venica. You'll appreciate the way its pungent aromas are evenly measured against its clean and fresh nature. With pretty floral tones and lovely green apple, this wine is absolutely vibrant and would make a great pairing with a Gorgonzola and penne pasta.
