Tenuta Angoris - Isonzo del Friuli Sauvignon
Tenuta Angoris - Isonzo del Friuli Sauvignon (86 tsomw points)
One of the whites I drank while enjoying vacation in Trento. My notes are not the best but give a brief introduction to this wine.
In the glass a bright straw yellow color.
On the nose intense aromas of peach, green apple and paprika with some flowers.
On the palate dry, medium+ acidity and a recall of the nose. The finish is medium long.
A good refreshing white sipper for hot days
A little history:
In order to thank him for his service in the 30 Years War, Locatelli Locatelli was given 300 fields in an area of Cormòns known as “Langoris” by then Emperor Ferdinand III in 1648. At the time this area of Friuli was part of the Hapsburg Empire.
From this time on, the quiet woods, green hills and gentle vineyards to the Tenuta di Angoris became a retreat for the royalty and èlite from throughout the Hapsburg Empire. Villa Locatelli, which still dominates the estate, became a symbol of quality and hospitality and the wines that came from the estate made their way across the royal courts of Europe.
Over three centuries have passed and the Tenuta di Angoris, one of the most prestigious Friuli wineries from time immemorial, is today managed with renewed enthusiasm and the entrepreneurial spirit of another Locatelli family (not related to the original Locatello): Marta Locatelli renewed in the latest years the wines and the looks of the Tenuta di Angoris.
The 17th Century Villa Locatelli is the home of the Tenuta di Angoris. A Villa where grace and elegance meet hospitality and warmth. We invite you to join us here for a look back in time and to recreate a moment where you too can feel like a prince or princess.
