Livio Felluga Picolit 0,375L 2017

Picolit is Friuli’s noblest wine, but its origins are still a matter for debate. It is only since 1750, thanks to the writings of Count Fabio Asquini, that we have any accurate documentation of this “nectar produced by the meagre berries of the bunch”. The peculiarity of this odd, delicate vine is the partial fertilisation of its flowers. This means that only a few, very concentrated berries ripen in each bunch. A complex wine the colour of old gold, Picolit marries sweet and acidulous sensations, releasing a pervasive aroma of candid peel, vanilla and Spring flowers. In the past, Picolit was the wine of Europe’s nobility. Today, it is admired as a prestigious meditation wine.

Colour

Concentrated antique gold.

Bouquet

Unique and stylish with complex aromas. Vibrant floral notes of mimosa, acacia, rosehip and saffron blend with dates, caramelised figs, candied ginger, dried apricots and candied citrus peel. A lovely hint of sweet spice – nutmeg – appears alongside subtle toasty sensations and dried fruit.

Flavour

Luscious, with perfectly balanced texture, sweetness and acidity. Fragrant apricot jam, figs and walnuts, passion fruit and elderflowers, blending with sweet hints of acacia honey, cinnamon, amaretto, almond paste, and creme brulée. A long, lingering finish bursting with ripe tropical fruit and sweet spices.

Pairing

A wonderful ‘meditation wine’ and ideal partner for flavoursome strong or blue cheeses. Also perfectly matched with tea biscuits and excellent with foie gras.

Harvest The healthy and perfectly ripe grapes are harvested by hand according to ripeness, in small crates, to preserve the integrity of the berry.
Vinification Carefully destemmed and left to macerate for a short period, the fruit is then soft crushed and the must obtained is allowed to settle. The must ferments at controlled temperature in small casks of French oak.
Ageing After fermentation, the wine settles on the lees to enhance savouriness, creaminess and ageing potential. The bottled wine is then aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars.
