Attems (Frescobaldi)
A Sauvignon Blanc vineyard lies on a hill called Cicinis in the heart of the Collio area. Expert care is lavished on it by those with centuries-old knowledge of this terroir, to create Cicinis, the Attems’ iconic wine.
Cicinis appears a luminous straw yellow, edged with ripe-lemon zest.
The nose immediately releases emphatic notes of tomato leaf and blackcurrant branch, followed by explosive white grapefruit, flowering broom, and late-ripened Leonforte peach, crowned by a crescendo of vanilla and toasted almond, which then transmute into a subtle but fascinating hint of gunpowder.
It enfolds the palate with its muscular, almost prickly acidity, beautifully balanced by a velvet-smooth finish that echoes the citrus, caramel, ginger and white pepper offered on the nose. Cicinis boasts near-endless length and a remarkable minerality, which is certainly fruit of the distinctive soil which produces it,: the famous “ponca” marl of the Friulan hills. In sum, an ultra-complex wine, yet one fully able to express itself with amazing simplicity.
