Livio Felluga



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.

Vinification: The part-dried grape was carefully destemmed. Next, the fruit was soft crushed. The must obtained was then allowed to settle. The now-clarified must fermented at controlled temperatures in small casks of French oak, where it matured for about 18 months.
Ageing: After fermentation, the wine was left on the lees in the small oak casks for about 18 months. Bottling took place in January 2006. The bottled wine was aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars.

Appearance: intense golden yellow

Nose: very elegant, complex, varietal aromas, hints of orange peel, apricot, fig, candied fruits and honey; floral notes of citrus fruits, linden and acacia; hints of spice

Palate: complex, sweet, articulate, balanced acidity and sweetness. Persistent aftertaste with aromatic sensations in harmony with the nose.

Serving suggestions: A fine partner for full-flavoured, tangy and marbled cheeses. Outstanding with foie gras. Superb as a meditation wine, Picolit is a fine complement to biscuits an fruit-based sweets.
