When to drink
Sauvignon Blanc is a very food-friendly wine: fantastic with both cold and hot, or steamed, fish “antipasti”, cold smoked fish “carpaccio”, oysters and also with sliced smoked meats. It is the only wine recognized as going well with sushi and sashimi. It goes with any first or second dish based on fish or shellfish, even when stewed, white meats such as veal, chicken and rabbit.
