This wine was created by Livio Felluga’s children and dedicated to him for his 85th birthday. It is a blend of Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Picolit. Illivio reflects the personality of the family's patriarch, balancing an intense character with elegance and finesse.
Livio Felluga emigrated from Istria and established his property in Brazzano in the 1950s. Convinced of the winemaking potential inherent in Collio and the Colli Orientali of Friuli, he bucked the trend of the times and started buying vineyards. Their landmark Terre Alte was first produced in 1981 and they have continued to make innovative and consistently high quality wines since. Winemaker Andrea Felluga has embraced stelvin in a characteristically forward-looking way. After experimenting with the closure for five years, he felt confident in using the stelvin closure to retain freshness and perfume in his wines.
