TASTE
Virtuoso Pinot Grigio, combining peach/apple richness and texture with a bright minerality and impressive length. Hints of pineapple & kiwi, accent flavours of ripe pear, Spring blossom & white peach on the nose, light acidity & a medium body finishing on a delicious mineral note.

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 grown in the village of Russiz Superiore in the district of Capriva del Friuli. The hilly terrain is at eighty metres above sea level, composed of layers of sandstone and loam rock (limestone and clay) that once made up the ocean floor. The proximity to the ocean and the Alps means that the vineyards get afternoon breezes that cool the grapes after warm, sunny days. Integrated pest management is used to protect the environment and the fruit is hand-picked.

WINERY
Grapes were destemmed, and the must underwent a cold maceration followed by a light pressing to separate the skins. Fifteen percent of the must was transferred to oak barrels and the rest was left to ferment in stainless steel vats. The wine aged on the lees for eight months followed by some time in the bottle.
