Vertigo Delle Venezie IGT
Vertigo wine of Livio Felluga winery is a red wine obtained from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in vineyards owned by the winery. The addition of Cabernet Sauvignon gives this great wine balance and complexity, affecting the structure and aging. Grapes are carefully destemmed and the fruit is then crushed. Fermentation is carried out with maceration on the skins at controlled temperatures in stainless steel containers. The juice is pumped over the cap frequently for about three weeks, in order to extract colour and aroma compounds from the skins. The wine is then racked.
Livio Felluga Vertigo has red colour with purplish highlights. In the glass you immediately perceive fruity notes of plum, fig, persimmon, allspice, blackberry and nutmeg which intertwine elegantly to fir and tobacco aromas. In the mouth this wine proves to be powerful and elegant. Fruity aromas of pomegranate, Granny Smith apple and elderberry berries fade towards nutty notes; aftertaste of cocoa beans and balsamic hints. We suggest to serve this wine at a temperature of 16-18 °C.

Chosen for you
In Friuli, and far beyond this special land of very special people and wines, the name Livio Felluga is synonymous with all that is best in the oenological heritage.
The long family tradition extends over five generations, back to the days when the Fellugas were making Refosco and Malvasia in their native Isola d’Istria.
Seventy years ago, the family’s skills were transferred to Friuli by the eldest son of the fourth generation, Livio, whose great privilege it is to be regarded as the patriarch of viticulture and winemaking in the region.
