Created by Livio Felluga’s children, who dedicated the wine to him for his 85th birthday, illivio reflects the personality of the family's "Patriarch", uniting strength with elegance.

History of the producer

In Friuli, and now not only on this land chosen by men and wines, Livio Felluga is a part of the best wine traditions.

A consolidated wine-making tradition that has passed down through five generations, that goes back to when the family was producing Refosco and Malvasia on their native land on the Istria Island.

Seventy years ago, Livio Felluga, firstborn of the fourth generation who has the great privilege of being considered the “patriarch” of the Friulian enology, moved the business to Friuli.

His urge to succeed helped perpetuate absolute and even stubborn love and devotion to the earth.

Today, the company is proud of their hillside in the Collio and in the Eastern Hills of Friuli: over 160 hectares of property, 155 of which being vineyards.

Vinification: The grapes are carefully destemmed and left to macerate for a short period. Next, the fruit is soft crushed. The must obtained is then allowed to settle. The now-clarified must ferments at controlled temperatures in small casks of French oak, where it matures for about ten months.

Nose: fragrant and elegant with notes of white peach and candied citrus zest and perfectly fused hints of oak; a bouquet marked by finesse and personality.

Palate: size and shape in perfect harmony; the class of Pinot Bianco, the volume of Chardonnay and the sweetness of Picolit are in balance; the savoury close is dominated by sweet notes which enhance its amplitude.

Serving suggestions: A particularly good match for fish, risottos and fresh cheeses.
