This award-winning blend of Friulano, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon grapes must be considered one of the most prestigious Italian whites. Intense straw yellow with golden reflections. On the nose, the bouquet of fruity, floral, mineral, with spicy notes are complex with exotic fruits, citrus, white peach, sweet almond, Mediterranean scrub, sage, elderflower, hawthorn, marjoram, and vanilla. On the palate it is elegant, enveloping, juicy, full, warm, fresh, sapid, and mineral, full-bodied, all in a perfect balance. The aftertaste of candied citrus fruits, aromatic herbs and vanilla lingers for a very long time.
A landmark wine for the region, the Livio Felluga 2017 Rosazzo Terre Alte is a careful blend of Friulano, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon packaged in a heavy bottle with the estate's distinctive geographic map depicted on the front label. The 2017 vintage threw some big challenges at vintners with hot summer temperatures and excessive rains in September. However, white varieties such as the ones used in this blend managed a good window for optimal ripening. The wine is deceptive, and I mean that in a good way. On first examination, the bouquet feels fruity and lean. But as the fibre of the wine settles on the palate, you are made aware of the unexpected complexity and depth delivered in a second wave. The wine rushes with intensity. Fruit, peach, and honey segue to crushed sandstone and dried basil. This is a keeper.
