Item Description
The wine is light yellow with reflections of green. The pretty bouquet has notes of intense fruit and flowers, which transfers to the palate with nuances of elder blossom and ripe fruit. This elegant, crisp Sauvignon has a long, gentle finish.

The grapes are handpicked for this classic wine from parcels in the northeastern area of the Andriano vineyards. This area is known for producing Sauvignon Blanc with wonderful acidity and fresh aromas because of the cooler climate and longer growing season. The grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature and then the wine matures on the lees for 6 months before bottling.


Cantina Andriano was founded in 1893 and lays claim to being one of the first wine-producing cooperatives in the region of Alto Adige. In September 2008, Cantina Andriano was absorbed into the cooperative of Cantina Terlano, a move to unify these two entities that are both located in the same small DOC of Terlano. The Andriano wines, however, are kept completely separate, as they have their own distinct traits, terroir, and history. The staff of Terlano manage the vineyards, vinification procedures, and the sales of Andriano wines and as a result Andriano has adopted the same philosophy of Terlano: high-quality, terroir-driven wines.


Andriano's vineyards are unique to the area because they are protected to the west by Mount Gantkofel, which is made of dolomite rock and calcareous stone. The sedimentary rock from this peak has eroded over the years and gradually settled, forming a downward sloping hill of deposited soil at the base of this valley. This sedimentary soil deposit expands like a fan from the mouth of the valley over an area of 200º from South-Southeast to Northeast and at an altitude of 260-340m above sea level. The fertile calcareous clay soil is typical of the area and leaves its footprint in the wine's character. As well, cooler climate conditions and high altitude are responsible for the crisp acidity in the wines that give them their unique complexity and freshness.


Cantina Andriano produces two categories of wines: the Classics line, which features wines that are vinified and aged in stainless steel and the Selections line with reds that are aged in small oak barrels and whites that spend more time with lees contact. Andriano wines are elegant and food friendly with good aging potential and wide appeal.
About Cantina Andriano
Cantina Andriano was founded in 1893 and was the first cooperative in Alto Adige. The vineyards are unique to the area because they are protected to the west by Mount Gantkofel which is made of dolomite rock and calcareous stone.

This fertile calcareous clay soil is typical of the area and leaves its footprint in the wine's character. The vineyards see the sun from early morning to mid afternoon. These cooler climatic conditions with respect to other areas in Alto Adige are responsible for the crisp acidity in the wines that give them their unique complexity and freshness. The wines are elegant with good aging potential.
