Rated Tre Bicchieri.
: "The Sauvignon Zuc di Volpe, with its typical straw yellow color, is a well balanced wine in its aroma/structure ratio. The first sensation found in this wine is the great harmony among the distinct "green" notes easily recognized by the nose that made this grape famous and the perception in the mouth of aromas always fruity, but softer and more elegant.
The Sauvignon involves and fascinates both drunk as an aperitif away from meals, but also with crustaceans and fish or even first courses containing tomatoes or bell peppers."

The art of winemaking dates back to the 17th century in Friuli. This Zuc di Volpe Sauvignon Blanc is a wonderful example of what happens when all of that history and training come together in a gorgeous wine. It's crisp and fruity, but not too, with some lovely minerality and acidity. We thoroughly enjoy drinking this wine all by itself; it's a great start to any meal or event. A bowl of our favorite Marcona almonds would go well with it if you're a little hungry, or a warm, French Pissaladiere of salt cod, potatoes and garlic, whipped into delicious submission and spooned onto toasted baguette slices. We love this Italian white with most any fish dish, as well as pasta fish dishes, but it goes just as well with chicken. Try it with a breaded, sauteed chicken schnitzel, topped with a brown butter, caper and lemon sauce, the way Thomas Keller likes to make it. Heaven for dinner. Lobster risotto and linguine with white clam sauce won't disappoint either. Keep in mind that this Zuc isn't just for dinner; it's fantastic with lunch and brunch fare like salads, eggs and egg dishes like quiche. So many options... When will you drink it?
