Il Livio DOC Livio Felluga
Livio Felluga produces this sensational blend that praises the denomination DOC “Friuli Colli Orientali Bianco”. It is composed by Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Picolit. The vineyards are trained with Guyot method on lands characterized by marls and sandstones of Eocenic origin. This wine was created in 1998 by the sons of Livio Felluga and it is dedicated to him for its 85th anniversary. It represents the personality of the “Patriarch”, expressing strength and elegance.

After the bottling, the wine is stocked in thermo-conditioned rooms.
