Livio Felluga



Blending grape varieties serves two purposes. First, it reconciles the culturally acquired expectations of the local consumer with those of the international wine lover, forming a link between Friuli and the rest of the world. From a winemaking point of view, blending gives the wine balance and complexity. The polyphenols of Cabernet Sauvignon contribute structure and aging potential to Vertigo.

The juice was pumped over the cap frequently for about three weeks, in order to extract colour and aroma compounds from the skins. Pressing was carried out after fermentation.
