Editorial Reviews for Livio Felluga Tocai Friulano Colli Orientali del Friuli
A fine balanced, if somewhat large scaled Tocai that combines the classic gently herbal aromatics with notes of melon, ruby red grapefruit pith and dry soil tones. In the mouth this is rich and offers up a fine core of almost peachy tones backed up by a nice earthy mineral notes. The finish is a touch short but stays true to the palate. Very refreshing and food friendly. 89pts
A bit of peach and apricot, nuts, nice thick mouthfeel sort of reminiscent of Chardonnay. A bit of grass, nice and warm. Good!
Melon and peaches with a great long elegant mineral finish.
Beautifully complex nose of mint, chick pea and bay leaf. Thick, viscous oily character. Really well oaked. Beautiful
Some peach, some spice, and a little buttery. Very delicious.
Stone and tropical fruits on the nose/mouth, mildly sweet with a smooth buttery texture. Would go well with shellfish.
Very good! Variety of fruit, mostly stone. Sweet finish, almost caramely for me.
A wine that leads itself towards finishing the bottle easily. Fresh, fun, beautiful weight and texture, nice lees stiring, clean nose (more floral then fruity) and finish. Great wine
