Nose: elegant and refined, gently intertwined fruity notes of flowering plants, quince, with aromatic herbs and spices such as mint, rosemary, anise, pink peppercorn, coriander, nutmeg and flower hints of oleander and almond.

Palate: lively, pleasantly savory; lime, bergamot; gentle finish of crème caramel and chopped hazelnuts.

Serving suggestions: Shellfish, oysters, caviar, mussels, seaweeds and other salty flavors; it’s a particularly good match with vegetables and light meats with delicate and rich dressings.

Pinot Grigio

This celebrated variety derives from a bud mutation of Pinot Noir. Pinot Grigio favours cooler climates and finds its ideal habitat on the hillsides. Livio Felluga's vinification technique gives 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.

About us

Company details

In Friuli, and far beyond this special land of very special people and wines, the name Livio Felluga is synonymous with all that is best in the oenological heritage.

The long family tradition extends over five generations, back to the days when the Fellugas were making Refosco and Malvasia in their native Isola d’Istria.
Seventy years ago, the family’s skills were transferred to Friuli by the eldest son of the fourth generation, Livio, whose great privilege it is to be regarded as the patriarch of viticulture and winemaking in the region.

In the 1950s, Livio set up the cellar at Brazzano, sealing his love for the hill country with the far-sighted purchase of the first Felluga vineyards at Rosazzo.

It was a success destined to endure, thanks to Livio’s absolute, and at times obstinate, dedication to the land.
He knows every step of his estate. He lives and breathes the land, because over the years his patience and determination have shaped it with a gentle hand, shunning aggressive intervention to coax out the best the soil can give. Rosazzo bears witness to this.

Today, the Livio Felluga estate extends over more than 160 hectares of hill country in the Collio and Colli Orientali del Friuli, with 155 hectares planted to vine.
The vineyards yield exclusively great wines with instantly recognisable fragrances and aromas. These are the map label wines.
