Color: yellow with intense coppery highlights

Nose: broad and complex, with flowery notes of wild roses, acacia blossom, tropical fruit and apricot;

Palate: fruity, elegant and full-bodied, with a good follow-though on the back palate and attractively balanced acidity. Soft, lingering finish, with notes of tropical fruit.

Wine Spectator 90 points - Aromatic smoke, acacia blossom, pear and chopped hazelnut notes lace this rich version, while vibrant acidity keeps this light- to medium-bodied and lithe. Lacy finish. Drink now through 2020. 30,000 cases made.-AN  (Jun 15 2015)

Vinous 88 points - Felluga’s 2013 Pinot Grigio is decidedly exotic in style. Candied orange peel, mint, chamomile and spices blossom effortlessly in the glass. Texturally quite appealing, the 2013 is another wine that needs to be enjoyed over the next year or two.  (Jun 2015)

Wine maker notes
Vinification: The bunches were carefully destemmed and left to macerate for a short period. Next, the fruit was soft crushed. The must obtained was then allowed to settle. The now-clarified must fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, where it matured for about six months.

Ageing: After fermentation, the wine was left on the lees in the stainless steel containers for six months. Bottling took place in March 2004. The bottled wine was aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for a minimum of two months.

Other text
This celebrated variety derives from a bud mutation of Pinot Nero. As Pinot Grigio prefers cool climates, hillside vineyards are its ideal habitat. Modern vinification techniques give the wine finesse and elegance while preserving the faint coppery highlights that are Pinot Grigio’s hallmark. Without doubt, it is the best-known Friulian wine around the world.
