For the grape variety Sauvignon Blanc it is very important to get the optimal ripening, both on a technological and on an aromatic level. The delicacy of the aromas and the balance of the taste are easy to compromise, in case of an anticipated or a late harvest. Sauvignon from Piemonte is really different from the ones from Friuli, Alto Adige and overseas, although they have a lower aromatic intensity, they are very elegant and easy to drink.
