Lis Neris 2017 Sauvignon Blanc "Picol", Friuli Isonzo Italy
Lis Neris is a fourth generation winery directed by Alvaro Pecorari, who took over from his father. In 1981, he made the decision to concentrate on quality and the expression of Friuli’s special terroir. Although Friulano is the grape most associated with Friuli, Alvaro feels that Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc also reach the highest heights of quality in this special terroir.
Three tiers of wine are produced, each reflecting a dramatic increase in complexity.This wine comes from his second tier, single vineyard wines, which see 500 litre oak casks for fermentation and extended lees contact, producing decidedly rich and concentrated wines with incredibly elegant texture.
