Livio Felluga Ribolla Gialla 2022

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. Rooted in ponca soils, this was native fermented in stainless, where it remained on lees for a few months until bottling. Honeysuckle, mandarin, and lime blossoms lead the subtle, sleek palate, with a thin layer of stony lees to base, and a lofted acidity to carry this through the saline finish. Super smart, with a great presence and time ahead.Tasted: 06 March 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
