With more than a century of history and tradition, Azienda Agricola Kurtin , has recently had a new start with Ulisse Bellesso, Alessio Kurtin and Isacco Curtarello. New ambitions for the future, always in the constant search for improvement while maintaining its local identity. Kurtin can use the Collio DOP denomination on their wines which is one of the best area of production for international grape varieties as Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon. However in this area white grapes have found their best growing area, as the native Ribolla Gialla Grape.
The origin of its name derives from “sauvage” (wild) due to its origins of native plant of the French south-west. It can do well in cooler areas within Europe, including parts of Austria and Hungary.
In New Zealand, it produces a stunning array of pungently, assertive characters, from the green grass and asparagus flavours to the more tropical, ripe spectrum of grapefruit, passion fruit and mango.
The Sauvignon cause has also been taken up to good and affordable effect by Chile and South Africa, whose cooler spots are proving ideal for this wonderfully zingy, fresh grape variety. In Italy, Sauvignon Blanc has found fertile ground on the marl and sandstone of the hills of Collio Goriziano and the Colli Orientali del Friuli, where it dominates together with the Friulano, making Friuli an obligatory destination for every white wine lover.
