One of the truly famous names in Italian wine, this estate now run by siblings Maurizio, Andrea, Elda and Filippo Felluga produces a plethora of very good to outstanding wines. The estate also owns the high quality Terre e Vino country hotel, run by Elda and located just in front of the winery (I point out the food is especially good and worthy of a pit stop or detour). At 800,000 bottles a year and 170 hectares under vine, the estate is not small by FVG standards, but the quality of the wines remains always high. Perhaps FVG’s best Picolit is made here (it is easily one of the top three examples made from this variety) and the deservedly famous Terre Alte and Abbazia di Rosazzo white wines, elegant, mineral blends of some of FVG’s best known white grapes. I think that the Terre Alte especially, along with Jermann’s outstanding Vintage Tunina, have been the two quality leaders in FVG white wine for many decades and easily make the list of Italy’s twenty-five or so best white wines. The red Sosso also ages splendidly and is one of the region’s best red wines.
