- Score: 86 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc blossoms in the glass with an array of dusty yellow flowers, crushed stone, fresh apples and a spritz of lime. It sizzles across the palate with salty intensity, yet it’s quite linear in style, dropping off rather quickly. This is best enjoyed sooner rather than later, leaving a clean and perfectly refreshed sensation. Shelf Talker Full Page Review

- Score: 87 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate With some 45,000 bottles made, the Tenuta Luisa 2018 Isonzo del Friuli Sauvignon is a crisp and light white wine that proves a cheerful and versatile pairing partner to the exotic favors of Thailand or Vietnam. Or you could pair it with a platter of barbecued shrimp with spicy dipping sauce. This is a lean and thin white that opens to fragrant tones of passion fruit, papaya and fresh citrus.
