Livio Felluga

Colli Orientali Friulano DOC

Classification: DOC Colli Orientali del Friuli

Varietal: Tocai Friulano

Region: Friuli Venezia Giulia

Known today as Friulano, it's Friuli's traditional wine with lots of personality and typicity. Well-structured, with harmonious, fruit-led complexity, the palate signs off with a characteristic after-aroma of bitter almonds.

Technical Notes

Vinification: The grapes are carefully destemmed and left to macerate for a short period. Next, the fruit is soft crushed. The must obtained is then allowed to settle. The must ferments in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine settles on the lees in the stainless steel containers for six months. The bottled wine is aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for a minimum of two months.

Soil: Marl and sandstone flysch of Eocene origin

Tasting Notes

Colour: Intense canary yellow with greenish hues

Nose: Broad, articulated with varietal characteristics, notes of spearmint, citrus peel, star fruit, golden apple, elderberry flower, almond, walnut and hints of orange blossom, white peach, sage, time, wisteria and white pepper

Palate: Balanced, elegant, slightly salty with nice acidity and harmonious fruit and mineral notes; typical bitter almond aftertaste integrated in a pleasant grassy sensation that extends the tastes

Food Matches

Food Pairing: Traditionally drunk as an aperitif in Friuli, pairs great with air-cured prosciutto crudo, salami and other sliced meats; pairs pleasantly with fish dishes and fresh and fatty cheeses.
