Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio 2018

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, ItalyLivio Felluga is one of the most respected producers of Friuli, dedicating his life to reviving high-quality and sustainable viticulture in the hills of this north-eastern, Adriatic-influenced Italian countryside. He emigrated from Istria and established his property in Brazzano in the 1950s, buying up old, neglected vineyards and rejuvenating them. From marl and sandstone hills, this was macerated for a short time (hence the slightest copper hue and grip) before a stainless ferment and six months on lees. Crisp and tight, with nimble lemon, pear skin, tangerine, lemon blossom on a slight palate, slicked with a healthy bed of lees. Quite a polished and sophisticated version of grigio.Tasted: 19 September 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 36.95 consignment Producer: Livio FellugaDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
