About the Wine

Attems is a historical producer from Friuli, with a long tradition in wine making, a deep knowledge of the territory and a winemaking heritage dating back nearly a millennium! The estate has one of the best positions in the area, with several microclimates that allow the winery to enhance the character of each wine, and highlight the unique varietals they cultivate. The Friuli region and its wine growing areas are unique and expressive, and the local territory shines through in all of the Attems wines.

The Cicinis Sauvignon Blanc is an utterly distinctive expression of Sauvignon Blanc. From a single vineyard in the Collio area, the tremendous density and aromatics are joined by a deep and complex texture due to the aging in oak barrels and cement eggs. Truly the Attems flagship!

Aging: 8 months in a combination of French oak barrels (65%) and egg-shaped cement vats (45%).

Tasting notes: Straw yellow with green highlights, Cicinis 2016 is noteworthy for its complex but very delicate bouquet of citrus fruits, sage and boxwood accents, which are enhanced by the striking presence of vanilla, toasted bread and coffee. The sugary grapes have produced an intense wine with notes of white peach and honeysuckle and a persistent, mineral finish.


Complexity and tension to this white with white peaches, stones and hints of dried mangoes. Full body and beautiful, energetic acidity that buttresses the ripe fruit nicely. Flavorful and very long. Drink or hold. ~94JS
