Livio Felluga Abbazia di Rosazzo 2014

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. This, Livio's flagship white, is a blend of Pinot Bianco, Ribolla Gialla, Sauvignon, Friulano, and Malvasia, from Brazzano di Cormòns' marl and sandstone soils. After starting ferment in stainless, this was moved to oak casks to complete fermentation and aging. Acacia, honeysuckle, grapefruit, lemon pith, is layered with salted marcona almonds and green leaf on a softer palate before a mineral hum on the finish. This is a wine that is showing lovely age now, but has a ways to go yet.Tasted: 09 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 62.00 consignment Producer: Livio FellugaDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
