Origin: DOC Colli Orientali del Friuli
Winemaker: Livio Felluga/Clicquot, Inc.
Retail Price: $20.49
Notes: A slightly pink hue and
crisp, clean style make this our choice for a summer brunch
wine. The nose of tropical fruits, rose petals and tulips
is almost enticing enough to dab behind the ears. Full and
fresh in the mouth with great acidity, it finishes with
lingering flavors of mango, apple and bananas.

this family-owned winery is recognized as producing some
of the Friuli area's finest white wines. Although well into
his 80s, founder Livio is surprisingly active in the winery,
passing his passions for quality and innovative winemaking
to future Felluga generations.
