Born from the desire to challenge ourselves with an aromatic grape variety not yet grown in our area, Traluce immediately garnered the attention that this new wine hoped to arouse. A variety of great complexity, Sauvignon has found a rich habitat in our soil, thanks also to the making of the right agricultural choices.
The vinification is meticulous, with attention to detail being imperative, but today, after 20 years of experience, we can say that we have achieved the harmony with the potential that it offers.
It is pale yellow in color with vivid greenish highlights, with a full aromatic bouquet going from fruity notes of pink grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit to more mineral notes of sage and flint. Flavorful to the palate, with a fresh acidity but with a very soft and harmonious finish.

Harvesting is done at the end of August in the early hours of the morning. The grapes are pressed and processed in an inert environment to preserve the aromas. Fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature for 12-14 days. After brief period of maturation on the yeasts to develop the full aromatic potential of the grape, it rests for 2 months before it is bottled and ready for consumption.
Perfect as an aperitif, with finger food or with an aromatic summer dish, Traluce can be successfully paired with vegetable dishes in general, and especially asparagus. Excellent with fish dishes and casseroles.
