Livio Felluga Rose 2018
Livio Felluga Rosé is an innovative way to express our terroir's personality, perceivable at first taste.
Variety: Merlot - Pinot Noir
Denomination: Venezia Giulia
Designated zone: I.G.T.
Soil type: Marl and sandstone flysch of Eocene origin
Grape: Merlot - Pinot Nero
Vine training system: Guyot
Pest control: Low environmental impact integrated pest management.
Harvest period: Pinot Nero at the end of August, Merlot in mid-September
Harvest method: Manual
Vinification: The bunches are harvested in crates to prevent mashing and then carefully destemmed. Next, the fruit is gently pressed. The must obtained is allowed to settle and then ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and partly in terracotta containers.
Ageing: The wine settles on the lees in the fermentation containers.
Appearance: light salmon pink
Nose: captivating, ranging from floral to mineral aromas. A weave of ripe pineapple, Percoca peach and papaya pulp with hints of Gallic rose, raspberry, light cinnamon and savoury notes of marine rock that convey a pleasant complexity.
Palate: well-structured, velvety and enveloping. Pleasant acidity that brings freshness and persistence. Currant notes in the finish.
Serving suggestions: Pleasant as an aperitif, it pairs perfectly to savoury as well as spicy food. Excellent match for oysters, spaghetti with fish roe and sea urchin, chicken tikka masala, sea asparagus or more simply fresh goat cheese.
