Product Description

Livio Felluga

Colli Orientali Sauvignon DOC

Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage: 2014

Region: Friuli Venezia Giulia

A variety originally from France, Sauvignon was introduced into Friuli under the Hapsburgs and became widely planted in the early 20th century. The wine is refreshing and captivating, with a generously wide, distinctive range of aromas, with notes of exotic fruit, yellow pepper, tomato leaf, mint and box hedge notes. It's a traditional wine from Friuli.

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 now-clarified must ferments in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine is left 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: Straw yellow with light greenish hues

Nose: Varietal, complex, exotic, refined, penetrating, notes of passion fruit, ginger, lantana, tomato leaf, boxwood and sage; hints of yellow pepper, citron, anise, nettles integrated with notes of sandalwood, Mediterranean herbs and slight coriander

Palate: Full, crisp, harmonius; exciting varietal sensations; long and vibrant aftertaste

Food Matches

Food Pairing: Excellent as an aperitif, Sauvignon is also an outstanding partner for asparagus, vegetable soups, creamed pulses and marinated fish.
