This is stunning Pinot Grigio. It's rich, complex and alluring yet, bright, fresh and crisp. It's the sort of wine that seems to get better and better the more you drink it. Very very impressive Pinot Grigio.
- MARCO FELLUGA is situated in Gradisca d'Isonzo, province of Gorizia. Founded in 1956, the estate is both a pioneer in quality as well as innovation and today comprises 250 acres of vineyards of which production is roughly seventy five percent white grapes and the remainder red. All of the wines come from vineyards within the most important DOC known as Collio Goriziano, or Collio. The white wines are filtered before being fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats. A certain proportion of the wine is refined in wooden casks, as are some of the red wines. The equipment used in the winemaking is of the latest technology updated through continual experimentation and in order to obtain the ideal results in harmony with respect for tradition. The property today is managed by Roberto Felluga, son of the prominent Marco Felluga, the inheritor of the founding Marco.
The Collio’s hilly terrain, formed during the Eocene period, is composed of layers of sandstone and loam rock (limestone and clay) that were once the ocean floor. Today the sea, which is about twenty kilometers (12 miles) away, and the nearby Alps send afternoon breezes over the vineyards, cooling the grapes after a warm day of sun. Proximity to mountains and sea, along with the mineral-rich but poor soils, create the ideal situation for producing complex, well- structured wines that are very ageworthy. These soils are impermeable so rainwater flows off their surface, producing little erosion and preventing standing water.
