Rosazzo DOCG 'Terre Alte' 2018 (750 ml.) - Livio Felluga

'Terre Alte' by Livio Felluga is an exceptional white wine, award-winning and acclaimed by critics. Blending of Sauvignon, Pinot Bianco and Friulano fruit of separate vinification and aging in steel and barrique. Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon ferment at a controlled temperature in steel tanks, while the Friulano ferments in small French oak barrels. This difference continues even after vinification, during the aging phase, which lasts, both in wood and in steel, for 10 months. The result is a wine with an elegant and complex bouquet with notes of tropical fruit, Mediterranean scrub, white flowers and aromatic herbs. Rich, soft, intense and persistent taste. A label that symbolizes quality.

THE WINE

Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon ferment at a controlled temperature in steel tanks, while the Friulano ferments in small French oak barrels.

THE COMPANY

A unique name in the Italian production scene, as well as a symbol of a region and its wines, it is easy to understand how much the story of Livio Felluga intertwines with that of a whole territory. A story that has as its protagonist a family that survived two world wars, which has witnessed the change of borders around it, and then decides to settle on the gentle buttresses of the Friuli hills. It is here that, not far from Cormòns in the province of Gorizia, Livio Felluga had to undertake a new battle to resurrect the hill, convinced that only the rebirth of quality cultivation could bring life back to the Friulian countryside. With great courage he began to rearrange the old vineyards and to plant new ones, introducing innovative ideas and methods. A hard work, made of stubbornness and passion, which over the years will lead him to create one of the most beautiful and significant business realities of the Peninsula, fully acquiring the unanimously recognized title of re-founder of the Friulian wine tradition.

Currently the company can count on a large area under vines, which from the denomination of the Collio up to that of the Colli Orientali del Friuli, covers about 155 hectares. In the vineyard, the varieties encountered are both native and international, for which we have Friulano and pinot bianco, chardonnay and ribolla giallo, sauvignon blanc and pinot grigio, picolit and refosco, pignolo and merlot . Grapes that are transformed into what are now called as the "wines of the geographical map", which has always been reproduced on the label and depicting an old map of the farms.

And then here comes the "Vertigo", the "Nuaré" and the "Sharis", then gradually all the others, up to the "Terre Alte": wines from a cellar that still shines today for quality and for the territorial character it manages to express, a true ambassador of the best Friulian - and therefore Italian - whites all over the world.
