    Winemaker's Notes:

    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.

    Appearance: straw yellow with light copper hues

    Nose: very elegant, crispy and complex with notes of jasmine, broom and magnolia flower; notes of white peach, apricot, pear, golden apple, cantaloupe, acacia honey; hints of crushed stone.

    Palate: elegant first impact, tense, with good balance; excellent retro-nasal aromatics; pleasant mineral note at the end.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Felluga'’s 2009 Pinot Grigio shows good varietal character, along with an extra touch of juiciness. Streaks of smoke, crushed rocks and jasmine mark the focused, well-articulated finish. This generous, fleshy Pinot Grigio is best enjoyed over the next year or two. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013.

    The Wine Advocate

    Livio Felluga's Pinot Grigio is distinguished by a thick, creamy mouthfeel and abundant aromas of peach, wild flower adn vanilla cream. The wine is clean and pristine, yet structured and smooth at the same time. Very nice.
