Vulcaia Fumè Sauvignon

SAUVIGNON DEL VENETO I.G.T.

Type | white

Grapes | Sauvignon

Impressions

Nose of roasted coffee, spices and flowers.
On the palate, tropical fruit, citrus and great aromatic complexity.
Strong and persistent finish of all the flavors.

The wine

The idea, as already with the Vulcaia Sauvignon, is to show value of the Soave the territory, not yet with its Classic wine, but with an interpretation of the Sauvignon.
This version, made from a super-selection of grapes, is fermented in oak, and we call it Vulcaia Fumé. Since the start, there’s been a great interest because of its opulence and its powerful characteristic of tropical fruit, coffee, citrus and floral notes.
Interpretation of the Sauvignon on volcanic soil, in the Soave Classico area.
Production transcends the styles and trends of the moment.
No competitors: UNIQUE WINE IN ITS CATEGORY, THERE ARE NO SIMILAR WINES.

Label

The label depicts the floor plan of the Berga Theatre in Vicenza, built in the Roman Age (I-II century A.C.) under the Emperor Adrian, using the “opus caementicium” technique and soft Berici Hill limestone, particularly appreciated for the ease with which it could be worked. Damaged by earthquakes and a fire, the theatre was gradually dismantled between 1400 and 1700 and its marbles and statues were used in the construction of other buildings. The great Veneto architect, Andrea Palladio, drew the plan in 1500 (“Pianta del Teatro Antico di Vicenza”). The label shows the reconstruction of the Roman theatre’s floor plan taken from the fifth volume of Vitruvio by Daniele Barbaro, 1556. The architect Nicholas Wood re-designed and adapted it to the label.
