Picolit DOCG in Box Livio Felluga
This bottle is sold in silk-screened Box.
This excellent wine by Livio Felluga, produced with Picolit grapes, praises the DOCG denomination. The vineyards are trained with Guyot method on lands characterized by marls and sandstones of Eocenic origin. Its origins are still characterized by mystery. Only in 1750 we read some information about this wine in the writings of the count Fabio Asquini. The particularity of this vine variety is the partial fecundation of the flowers, that determines the growth of a few, small grapes for each bunch. This variety produces a gold-coloured wine, with sweet and sour sensations. It develops an enchanting perfume that recalls candied fruits, vanilla and wild flowers. It was the meditation wine of the European nobles. Once reached the over-maturation of the grapes, the wine-making considers the elimination of stalks. After the soft pressing, the must is clarified through static decanting. The fermentation is managed in French oak barrels at controlled temperature. At the end of the fermentation, the wine rests on lees for 18 months. After the bottling, 18 months aging in thermo-conditioned rooms.
