3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

This Italian estate was founded in 1950 by Marco Felluga. Located in Gradisca d’Isonzo, a fortified citadel of the Venetian Republic, today Marco’s son Roberto runs the winery. Felluga controls over 250 acres of vineyards, most of which are family owned and operated, within the Collio. The vineyards are planted on layers of sandstone, limestone and clay at an elevation of 262 feet. Roberto employs integrated pest management in the vineyards to protect the environment. White wines are filtered before fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. A percentage of white and red wines are refined in wooden casks. The winemaker Rafaella Bruno employs the latest technologies, while respecting tradition.

Tasting notes
Straw yellow with bright green reflections.Almond blossom is distinct on the nose followed by floral notes of hawthorn and camomile leaving space for a vegetal background. In the mouth it is well-structured, silky and enveloping. The alcohol is well supported by a fresh and fruity vein, leaving a pleasant aftertaste.

Wine maker notes
After harvesting the grapes are separated from the stalks. The juice and pulp then undergo a maceration at controlled temperature followed by a light pressing which allows the separation of the grape-skins from the must. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats and the wine is left to refine for approximately six months before being bottled.

Food pairing
Excellent with all types of fish. It also accompanies risottos and all first course dishes well.
