*Vintage may vary by location*

Full yellow with fascinating golden and greenish highlights. 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 and 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.

Aromas of spiced pear, lime, dried pineapple and some beeswax. It’s medium-to full-bodied with bright acidity. Concentrated, textured and focused. Delicious now.

The Livio Felluga 2018 Friuli Colli Orientali Friulano (closed with a screwcap) is a charming white wine with an accessible and easy style but with much of the creamy richness and texture that is characteristic of this excellent grape variety. The bouquet produces pear, apple and ripe peach. There are subtle aromas of toasted almond, saffron and a touch of crushed rock or oyster shell. This lovely white would pair with a Sicilian pasta made with cubed swordfish, fried eggplant and fresh mint.
