A blend of Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Picolit, the Livio Felluga 2017 Friuli Colli Orientali Illivio is a true beauty. This is a mildly creamy and textured wine that hits all the right palate pressure points. It offers density and warm-vintage intensity but is never heavy or flat. Indeed, the wine is teeming with energy, depth and a unique personality that pegs it to the verdant hills and colorful rose gardens of Friuli. This corner of northeast Italy comes alive in the spring, and this wine blossoms in the mouth.
