Collio in Italy’s extreme North-east Friuli region is the recognised standard bearer for quality white Italian wines. Patrizia Felluga (from the local wine dynasty that includes her father and uncle) founded the winery to sum up the terroir of the region, to do so from a single ‘cru’ or vineyard. It is planted with Friulano, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio & Sauvignon Blanc and produces two wines.
Zuani Sodevo Ribolla Gialla 2015
The Collio zone of Italy’s extreme Northeastern Friuli region is the recognised originator and standard bearer for quality white wines from the country. Patrizia Felluga (from the local wine dynasty that includes her father and her uncle – Marco & Livio) founded the winery to sum up the terroir of the region.
The Sodevo wines are a new range by Patricia & family with fruit from a plot of the same name. Fermented in stainless steel these are great examples of the pure, fruit driven style that pushed Collio to the forefront of Italian white wine.
The Sodevo Ribolla Gialla is a prime example of the history of the area –the Ribolla variety is inextricably linked to the hillside vineyards of the zone. The grapes undergo a pre fermentation maceration and 10% of the wine is fermented and aged in 2.25 hl casks on its lees. The Ribolla is a wonderful food grape, savoury and delicately fruity with clean citrus, jasmine and apple. 1,250 cases made
