The 2006 Sauvignon de la Tour kicks things up a few notches. Made in a style that is racy and full-bodied, it reveals outstanding concentration and superb precision without sacrificing its varietal qualities. Considered by many observers to be one of Italyandrsquo;s top Sauvignons, the 2006 Sauvignon de la Tour is a stunner. Anticipated maturity: 2007andndash;2012.

This superb wine takes truly great fruit and augments it (rather than masking it, thank heavens) with just a whiff of very appealing oak. The wood notes are just about as subtle as they could be, and most of the effect is really indirect rather than overt, as oxygen intake seems to have been more the objective than outright flavoring. Be that as it may, the end result is indisputably delicious, showing quite complex fruit notes of lime, honeydew melon, and ripe fig, along with accents of dried herbs and smoke.

Bright straw-yellow with flashes of green. Multifaceted, unmistakably sauvignon aromas of artichoke, asparagus, green fig, citrus and tomato leaf. Bright acids give energy and lift to the fig, citrus, sage and mint flavors. With its complicating stoney minerality and terrific juicy persistence, fans of slightly greener-styled sauvignons will fall in love with this one.
