Why this wine made the cut…
Unique personality. If you like the salty, sweet balance of melon and prosciutto, this is a must try.

Better known by its former moniker, ‘Tocai Friuliano’, Friuliano is native to Friuli, northern Italy exhibiting a perfume, and pear-like aromas with slight bitter almond notes on the finish. It can greatly range in style from Light and Crisp to more Balance & Finesse or even slightly Rich & Full Palate Characters--the crisp acidity offsets the potential richness.

Livio Felluga

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy

The Felluga family are fifth-generation winemakers. Livio Felluga founded his eponymously named winery in the 1950s in Friuli’s rolling hills, helping to carve out a name for quality white wines in the Collio. He passed away in 2016 at 102-years-old, and now his son Andrea and his siblings carry on their father’s legacy.

The Felluga estate is 400 acres with 38 planted to vines on sandy-marl mineral-rich soils. The top cuvée, Abbazia di Rossazzo, is named after a famous abbey in Rosazzo which had longstanding meaning to Livio, who was entrusted with the honor of caring for the Abbey’s vineyards and cellars. 

The wines of Livio Felluga are lush, crisp, well-balanced wines with bright fruit, minerality, and floral notes.
