Livio Felluga White Blend Collio Illivio 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Livio Felluga emigrated from Istria and established his property in Brazzano in the 1950s. Convinced of the winemaking potential inherent in Collio and the Colli Orientali of Friuli, he bucked the trend of the times and started buying vineyards. He now has an amazing property, covering 160 hectares in Rosazzo of which 135 are under vine. Recently revitalised by Livio’s four children (Andrea, Maurizio, Elda and Filippo), the estate is now well on the way to reclaiming its rightful place among the great producers in Italy. The energy injected into the estate by the younger generation has been harnessed by consultant viticulturalist/winemaker Stefano Chioccioli. As a result of their combined work, the whites have acquired more intense and focused flavours, while the reds have a ripeness and suppleness that is seldom achieved in Friuli. Light gold in colour, this wine is perfumed and elegant on the nose, with notes of white flowers, exotic fruit and a hint of spice. It is rich, creamy and honeyed on the palate, yet balanced and elegant, with persistent length.
