Livio Felluga Sharis 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

It is obvious that the story of Livio Felluga and his wines is bound up with the history of this very special land in the north east corner of the Adriatic, where the Mediterranean meets central Europe. It is a history of ever-shifting frontiers, vanished empires, passing wars and people who have chosen to remain. Blending grape varieties in Sharis reconciles the culturally acquired expectations of the local consumer with those of the international wine lover, forming a link between Friuli and the rest of the world. From a winemaking point of view, blending gives the wine balance and complexity. On its own, Ribolla Gialla has aromatics that are not particularly assertive, but its contribution is important, for it gives the blend texture, freshness and vivacity. This Chardonnay blend is pale canary yellow with light golden hues. The nose is fruity, fresh with notes of pineapple, citron, peach, white flowers and hints of fresh spice. The palate is lively, fresh, with an excellent balance of acidity - long and persistent finish with evident notes of citrus and spices.
