Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio is a straw yellow color with light copper hues. The nose is extremely fine and intense, crispy and complex, with evident notes of jasmine and wild flowers; aromas of white peach, apricot, pink grapefruit, pear, banana, cantaloupe and mango; a light note of crust at the end. The palate is fresh and silky, with good balance; excellent retro-nasal aromatics; mineral components well integrated.A particularly good match for fish, mollusc appetizers, risottos and baked vegetables.
Color: yellow with intense coppery highlights
Nose: broad and complex, with flowery notes of wild roses, acacia blossom, tropical fruit and apricot;
Palate: fruity, elegant and full-bodied, with a good follow-though on the back palate and attractively balanced acidity. Soft, lingering finish, with notes of tropical fruit.
Vinification: The bunches were carefully destemmed and left to macerate for a short period. Next, the fruit was soft crushed. The must obtained was then allowed to settle. The now-clarified must fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, where it matured for about six months.
Ageing: After fermentation, the wine was left on the lees in the stainless steel containers for six months. Bottling took place in March 2004. The bottled wine was aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for a minimum of two months.
This celebrated variety derives from a bud mutation of Pinot Nero. As Pinot Grigio prefers cool climates, hillside vineyards are its ideal habitat. Modern vinification techniques give the wine finesse and elegance while preserving the faint coppery highlights that are Pinot Grigio’s hallmark. Without doubt, it is the best-known Friulian wine around the world.
