There are few producers who have been more important in defining the quality image of Italian white wines than Livio Felluga. Their landmark Terre Alte was first produced in 1981, and they have continued to make innovative and consistently high quality wines ever since.The way in which winemaker Andrea Felluga has embraced Stelvin is another example of his forward-looking outlook. After experimenting for five years, Andrea now feels confident that Stelvin is the right step for the Felluga wines, and that it will retain the freshness and perfumes that mark these wines out from the crowd.
This quality of the Felluga range is in large part due to the fact that the fruit is grown on their 200 hectare property, divided into 300 parcels. The estate's vineyards straddle provincial borders, being located in both Colli Orientali and Collio. Their most prized possession is the holding at Rosazzo, where their Merlot, and the grapes used in the fabled Terre Alte blend, are planted. Andrea Felluga and consultant Stefano Chioccioli have ensured that the quality of the fruit is preserved in the finished wine.
