Livio Felluga



Grapes: Sauvignon, Pinot Bianco, Malvasia Istriana.

Estate: Friuli

Colour: Very intense, almost impenetrable ruby red.

Nose: The nose is dramatic. Elegant. Glorious. A stunning attack unveils myriad nuances, from juicy sage leaves to cardamom, elderflower, bergamot and rambutan in a riotous medley of tropical fruits with guava and pineapple to the fore. Subtle wafts of vanilla, confectioner's custard, sweet almonds, candied peel, fig leaves, mangustan, fresh and candied kumquat and nettles of interest. A piquant nose. A crisp nose. Kaleidoscopic. The fragrances then shade into lantana blossom, tuberose, a hint of star anise, white pepper, sandalwood, pink pepper, goji flowers, nutmeg, lemon thyme, sea salt minerality, incense, curcuma and amber. Lays out a thrilling aromatic array. 

Palate: Sumptuously plush on entry, the palate expands at once, unleashing all its seamless power and weight. Progression is powerful. Relentless. Savoury minerality accompanies a follow-through of tropical fruits, elegantly sweet herbs and spices.

Food Pairings: Red meats, roasts, feathered game and mature or moderately mature cheeses.
