Producer
The historic Russiz Superiore estate was purchased by Marco Felluga in 1967. It is superiore in two senses: the vineyards occupy particularly high slopes, with a commanding view of the Collio hills, and also offers wines that are in the very top echelon of Friuli, with outstanding concentration and personality coming from the fruit. The property, whose roots can be traced back to 1273, today consists of ninety-six hectares, of which seventy are under vine.

Vineyard
Grapes are from Russiz Superiore in Capriva del Friuli. The hilly vineyards lie at eighty metres above sea level and the soil is composed of layers of sandstone and loam rock (limestone and clay) that once made up the ocean floor. Due to their proximity both to the sea and the Alps, the vineyards get afternoon breezes that cool the grapes after warm, sunny days. Integrated pest managemet is used to protect the environment and grapes are hand-picked.

Winery
The grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel vats. The wine was then aged for twelve months in barriques and a further six months in bottle before release.

Taste
A complex, fruity nose of black cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant, with a hint of green pepper. Richly elegant in the mouth, with a pleasing interplay between ripe fruit and textural grip.
