Terroir: The Lovo family has been cultivating their land in the village of Vò in the Euganean Hills since the 18th century. It is here that their family has been rooted in the winemaking traditions of the Veneto. The proximity to the Alps and the Adriatic allows both cool alpine breezes and warm sea air to weave together promoting perfect acidity and aromas in the grapes.
Tasting Notes: Kali Sauvignon Blanc is the first collaboration between Francois Dufour and long time friend Salvatore Lovo. This wine is named after Francois’ first granddaughter, Kali, who’s bright charm, boisterousness, and zeal for life parallels the qualities of this wine. Enjoy note of green apple, fresh grass, bits of herbs and a dash of lime zest. The flavors mingle together with the pleasant acidity and balance. Kali Sauvignon Blanc pairs with everything from chicken, pork, crab and cod to soft cheeses like Humboldt Fog and Crottin De Chavignol. Also try vegetable dishes like asparagus quiche, white been casserole or hummus.
