Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio...according to John Mariani
......... " The first time I tasted one was in the late 1970s, when pinot grigio was virtually unknown in the U.S. It was made by Livio Felluga from the hilly Colli Orientali region northeast of Venice and had a pale, pink-gold color, lively fruit and bracing acids, with more body than most French or Austrian pinot gris."
......"When I tasted the 2004 Livio Felluga, I smiled broadly. Here was the same pink-gold wine I remember from 30 years ago, with the same big fruit. It was silky on the palate and had several layers of flavors on the finish. This is what pinot grigio can be at its best, and I expect to open plenty of it this summer when the fish is on the outdoor grill."
