SUPER Sauvignon Blanc from Italy
The Pierpaolo Pecorari Estate is located in Eastern Friuli near the former republic of Yugoslavia. The estate is known for its elegant white wines with great varietal character. Pierpaolo cultivates his grapes according to local tradition with a minimum of chemical intervention before they are cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks. Due to the low production of wine from this small estate (5,000 cases per year), special attention is given to producing a superior quality in each bottle released.
If you love Sauvignon Blanc and white Bordeaux, then you are in for a real treat. The Sav Banc from Pecorari is simply amazing for the price. You can see the beautiful straw color and smell the fresh cut basil and grapefruit along with white flowers and minerals. Yeah, that sounds a lot like a wine from Graves (Pessac-Leognan) region of Bordeaux. But, once you see the price you will be shocked. That’s why it’s this weeks’ MUST BUY WPW deal.
Act fast, there’s limited quantities arriving later this week.

A stunning wine, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc presents a picture-perfect portrait of this fragrant grape variety. The purity, focus and intensity here are all stratospheric and although this wine is an emblematic statement on many levels, it is in no way overdone or exaggerated. The bouquet is bursting with wild flower, exotic fruit, tomato leaf, spicy ginger and fog-soaked chaparral. The aromatic quality wins high points indeed. In the mouth, this crisp white wine offers a steely, streamlined feel and mineral complexity. I absolutely enjoyed this fresh and food friendly Sav Blanc that has all the qualities of a top white Bordeaux, just not the price.
