Livio Felluga

Sossˇ

DESCRIPTION

Created in 1989, this wine is named after the Sossó stream, which runs at the foot of the hill where the grapes grow. Made with carefully selected and oldest vines of Merlot and Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso grapes, together with a small percentage of Pignolo, from Rosazzo. Sossò is the result of skilful vinification and barrique maturation that lasts for 18 months. A supremely complex and well-structured wine, it stands out for its elegant, ripe, sweet, fruity tannins.

Awards:
- "I Vini di Veronelli 2012" - Luigi Veronelli: "3 stars"

Vinification: The grapes are carefully destemmed and the fruit are then crushed. Fermentation is carried out with maceration in temperature controlled stainless steel containers and in oak casks. The juice is pumped over the cap frequently for about three weeks, in order to extract colour and aroma compounds from the skins. The wine is then racked.

Sensory characteristics:
Appearance: very intense, almost impenetrable ruby red.

Nose: broad, elegant, very complex, crispy, with sweet notes of ripe plum, cherries, blackberries and blueberries, raspberry, integrated with intense notes of spice.

Palate: well-structured, velvety; sweet, close-knit tannins and acidity in perfect harmony with the wine's richness and concentration; long, lingering, mineral finish; notes of mint, white pepper, myrtle, white cocoa and blackberry.

Serving suggestions: Red meats, roasts, feathered game and mature or moderately mature cheeses.
