MARCO FELLUGA is situated in Gradisca d’Isonzo, province of Gorizia. Founded in 1956, the estate is both a pioneer in quality as well as innovation and today comprises 250 acres of vineyards of which production is roughly seventy five percent white grapes and the remainder red. All of the wines come from vineyards within the most important DOC known as Collio Goriziano, or Collio. The white wines are filtered before being fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats. A certain proportion of the wine is refined in wooden casks, as are some of the red wines. The equipment used in the wine making is of the latest technology updated through continual experimentation and in order to obtain the ideal results in harmony with respect for tradition. The property today is managed by Roberto Felluga, son of the prominent Marco Felluga, the inheritor of the founding Marco.
“A racy, light-bodied white, with the floral nose leading to pineapple, peach and grapefruit zest flavors, underscored by ground white pepper and stone notes. Drink now through 2023. 3,000 cases made.” – 90 points, Wine Spectator (April 2018)
