Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio 2021

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. Anjou pear, lemon pith, green fig run the length of this sleek white, with a fine grained buzzy texture underneath. Lovely energy in this subtle wine; a grigio with a sense of place.Tasted: 21 October 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
