Perfect for young and medium bodied white wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion

WHITE WINE SAUVIGNON LIVIO FELLUGA 2021 DESCRIPTION

The Sauvignon Livio Felluga is the finest expression of the splendid vineyard on the hills of Friuli. Livio Felluga has tied the fate of his name with the one of Friuli, interpreting in an extraordinary way towards art winemaking how the landscape speaks with infinite passion. A tribute to his loved hills is the famous label with a beautiful map, with which Livio has won the favor of the world, telling the story of a country which has been able to "believe in the power of the hills" when were the factories to attract employees, instead of the countryside. The Sauvignon Livio Felluga is a distillate of his hills, of their gentle slopes worked by Felluga family with great love, since that Livio passed this feeling to his sons. The Sauvignon Livio Felluga, an incredible withe wine of a brilliant straw-yellow color, is intense and suddenly will conquers with the versatility of its scents. Its flavors range from romantic notes of sweet flowers to those of citrus, to the enveloping perfume of custard, to the spontaneity of tomato leaf. Surprising in tasting with deep freshness, the Sauvignon Livio Felluga cheers the palate with a valuable sour vein. A real intriguing withe wine, enchanting every sip with a new expression of itself and of the terroir of Friuli Venezia Giulia, region of whom it is a proud representative.
