Peter Dipoli Sauvignon - Voglar 2020



"What do you get when you plant Sauvignon Blanc on the steep, high-altitude slopes near Bolzano in Alto Adige, the German-speaking slice of northern Italy also known as Südtirol? Whereas most Sauvignons that come from the various appellations within the Loire Valley bear some resemblance to each other, Peter Dipoli’s Voglar tastes, at most, like a third cousin, twice removed. It is unlike any Sauvignon Blanc you have had—unless you have tried this cuvée before. Even then, the 2016 Voglar is leaner, more chiseled than previous years. Evoking pine resin, citrus, white flowers, herbs, and stones, this bottling is a contender for “the most irresistibly intriguing wine you will taste all year.” Voglar is perennially one of Italy’s best whites, and our staff just might rank it as our favorite Sauvignon Blanc in the shop." - Tom Wolf, Kermit Lynch (Importer)

"Fans of Peter Dipoli have a lot to look forward to. This Alto Adige estate is renowned for its Voglar, one of the region's most delicate yet deeply impactful Sauvignons..." - Eric Guido, Vinous

"Delicately floral and precise, the 2020 Sauvignon Voglar entices with lemon oil, sage and stone dust complementing crisp green apple. It's softly textured yet finessed, an understated beauty. Brisk acidity motivates tart orchard fruits and citrus notes. This finishes remarkably fresh and with admirable length, leaving lingering apricot and lemon zest nuances. This was a warm and generous vintage, yet the Dipolo style remains wonderfully refined." - 92 points, Eric Guido Vinous
