“The Illivio Bianco bottling from Livio Felluga is made from a rather unique blend of pinot bianco, chardonnay and picolit. It is barrel-fermented and raised in barriques for ten months prior to bottling. The 2020 Illivio offers up a deep and complex bouquet of tart orange, green olive, a beautifully complex base of minerality, lime peel, gently musky floral tones and a deft touch of oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with lovely depth at the core, refined mineral undertow, zesty acids and impeccable balance on the long, vibrant and very classy finish. First rate juice. 2023-2035+.”

“Terre Alte is one of the finest vineyards in the township of Rosazzo, where Livio Felluga first settled down and started making wine once World War II hostilities came to a close. The wine is made from a blend of Friulano, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Bianco, with the Friulano portion of the blend barrel-fermented and aged in casks prior to blending. The 2020 Terre Alte is superb on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet wafting from the glass in an exotic blend of passion fruit, casaba melon, beeswax, lemon zest, a touch of green olive, wild fennel, salty minerality and just a touch of oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still a touch youthfully reductive, with a rock solid core of fruit, superb mineral drive, bright acids and lovely length and 40 grip on the complex and well balanced finish. This is still a youthful wine and will be even a better drink with a bit of cellaring time. Fine, fine juice. 2023-2035.”

“A vibrant white, tightly meshed and lightly chalky in texture, with a minerally, saline- and smoke-tinged base note and lemony acidity. Offers a finely woven mesh of poached apricot, juicy pear, blanched almond and white blossoms. Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Picolit. Drink now through 2028.”

“A more restrained and classy sauvignon with white sesame, light pears, apples and flint. Medium-bodied with a solid center palate and lovely length. This is complex and pretty. Real refinement with sauvignon blanc. Drink now. Screw cap.”

“Subtle and refined on both the nose and palate with peach pie and mineral with hints of nutmeg. Medium body. Round and creamy. Spicy at the end. Drink now. Screw cap.”
