Wine Comments
Light gold in colour with perfumes of fresh spiced butter and a touch of pineapple on the nose, with a fresh bread note from the lees ageing. On the palate, this wine has a lovely elegant structure, with a fine, mineral quality rounded out by a succulent, ripe stoned fruit character and a long, floral finish.

The Domaine
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
( Screwcap Saranex liner ) to retain freshness and perfume in his wines.

Food Pairing
Pasta shells with fennel and cream,pasta and pesto and swordfish.
