Livio Felluga, Pinot Grigio, 2021
Region: Colli Orientali, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Pinot Grigio
This wine is straw yellow in colour with light coppery hues. Intense yet elegant aromas of melon and candied fruit are complemented by stone fruit and floral notes, with a delicate mixture of brioche, honey and flint. Full-bodied, crisp, rounded. A fresh, enfolding, mineral and savoury entry. The very long, lingering finish offers a fruity, salty aftertaste.
There are few producers who have been more important in defining the quality image of Italian white wines than Livio Felluga. Their landmark ‘Terre Alte’ was first produced in 1981, and they have continued to make innovative and consistently high-quality wines ever since. The way in which winemaker Andrea Felluga has embraced screwcap is another example of his forward-thinking approach. After experimenting for five years, Andrea now feels confident that screwcap is the right step for the Felluga wines and that the closure will help retain the freshness and perfume that mark these wines out from the crowd.
