Livio Felluga Sosso Rosso 2016

Born in 1989, it takes its name from the small stream "Sosso" located at the foot of the hill where the grapes grow. A careful selection of Merlot and Refosco - with a small percentage of Pignolo - produced from the oldest vines of Rosazzo, is the result of a meticulous vinification and ageing in small barrels that lasts for 18 months. A wine of great complexity and structure, it is distinguished by elegant tannins, ripe, fruity and sweet.
