About the Wine
Livio Felluga is credited with innovating and mastering modern winemaking in Italy. Back from WWII, he sealed a deep bond with the hillsides of Friuli by reviving the vineyards of Rosazzo. He is regarded as “the patriarch of the wines of Friuli.”
In 1956, Livio anticipated the implementation of appellation of origin (DOCG). He chose an ancient map of the area to create an iconic label to tell the world the story of his wines. Pioneering vision, deep knowledge, respect for the vineyards, and obsession with quality, embodied by Livio Felluga himself, have been proudly carried out by the company over the years.
Today, the family-owned winery is led by Livio‘s son, Andrea Felluga. Known for producing lush, crisp and well-balanced wines, the winery‘s reputation extends well beyond the region of Friuli and its wines are recognized in a class with the most esteemed producers from around the world.
This wine was bottled in July 2014. Tertiary aromas will develop over the years to come.
Tasting Notes: The color is an intense straw yellow. The nose is elegant and refined, with gently intertwined fruity notes of flowering plants, quince, with aromatic herbs and spices such as mint, rosemary, anise, pink peppercorn, coriander, nutmeg and flower hints of oleander and almond. The palate is lively, pleasantly savory; lime, bergamot; gentle finish of crème caramel and chopped hazelnuts.
This wine airs beautifully with shellfish, oysters, caviar, mussels, seaweeds and other salty flavors; a particularly good match with vegetables and light meats with delicate and rich dressings. Best served between 57°F and 60°F.
