L”Astemia Pentita is amongst those wine producers who experiment with some grape varieties which are not purely indigenous but which the soils of the Langhe transform into wines of remarkable workmanship. Sauvignon displays all of its potential as an international grape variety, retaining its pecularities and absorbing from the whitish marl and its Tortonian origins something of our local character.
Elegant, enjoyable and very particular on the nose. The distinctive trait of this wine is its note linked to volatile thiols, expressed by hints which recreate boxwood, tomato leaf, grapefruit and passion fruit. The result is an intense and intriguing aroma. On the palate, a subtle and pleasing fresh texture. Its sapidity is evident and balanced with a good alcohol content and a rich extract. Perfect as an aperitif, this wine is also a worthy food pairing, particularly vegetarian.
