External Reviews for Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio Collio
Rich and fruity, with pineapple, papaya and a hint of licorice. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and a lively acidity. Goes on for a long time on the palate. Intensely fruity. Drink now.
Livio Felluga produces one of Italy's best Pinot Grigios and this terrific vintage is no exception. The wine has a slightly copper hue to its color and delivers a full, creamy style with an emphasis on soft peach and honey.
Shows good apple, pear and honey character. Medium-bodied, with good fruit and a medium finish. Has a minerally aftertaste, with clean fruit. Drink now.
Apple pie, mineral, piecrust and ripe mango aromas. Full-bodied, with bright acidity and a lively finish. Drink now.
Good medium straw-yellow with pink highlights. Perfumed, fruit-driven aromas of ripe apple, tangerine and pear liqueur lifted by dried flowers and baking spices. Intensely fruity on the palate, offering very ripe tangerine, pineapple and pear flavors complicated by a suggestion of sage. Finishes very long and pure. The best-balanced pinot grigio by Felluga in years, and deceptively concentrated in its lightweight, high-acid frame.
The 2008 Pinot Grigio reveals layers of perfumed, floral fruit, showing lovely depth and richness. A long, refined finish rounds out this very pretty Pinot Grigio. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.
