Livio Felluga Friulano Colli Orientali 2019
|Region||Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Colli Orientali del Friuli|
The color is a full yellow with fascinating golden and greenish highlihts. The nose is elegant, intense, and captivating. The varietal expression of citrus, tomato leaves and almond is enriched by fruit notes of gooseberry, apricot, kiwi, yellow peach, and by flower aromas of lemon blossom, jasmine, antique rose, and citrus aromas of bergamot and citron peel. Almost viscous aromatic perception in its intensity and structure. The palate is embracing, complex, lively. Soft attack and a growing freshness. Notes of ripe golden apple, dried fruit and vanilla fuse together with balsamic hints of sage and thyme. Pleasant tannins and good persistence with a typical slightly bitter note in the finish and citrus aftertaste.
Traditionally drunk as an aperitif in Friuli, great match with prosciutto crudo, salami and other sliced meats. It also pairs beautifully with fish dishes and fresh and fatty cheeses.
Apricot, papaya, waxed lemon, stone and white pepper on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with a creamy texture. Deliciously smooth, flavorful and fresh finish. Drink now.
