Join winemaker, Andrea Felluga, in a four-vintage vertical tasting of one of Italy's most show-stopping wines: The Livio Felluga Terre Alte. Located in Friuli, Italy, Livio Felluga established the winery in 1956 and the winery has been family-operated since its inception. Today it is managed by the children of Livio Felluga.
The Livio Felluga winery is known for their iconic map label, which depicts the terrain of Friuli. Their most famous wine, Terre Alte was first introduced in 1981. It is an innovative blend of estate-grown Friulano, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon grapes from estate vineyards in the Rosazzo zone. For Friuli, a region loyal to varietal wines, Terre Alte marked a new and intriguing beginning. It is a wine that radically revolutionized the philosophy of wine production, not only in Italy, but also in the world.
Livio Felluga's Terre Alte is consistently represented in all of the Wine Spectator tastings, including the Grand Tour, the Wine Experience and their newest addition, Opera Wine, which takes place in Verona, Italy and highlights only the 100 best Italian wineries.
This vertical tasting will truly be a unique opportunity, as older vintages of Terre Alte are extremely limited in production. The tasting will highlight the development and most optimal harvests of this wine.
Winemaker Andrea Felluga says, "Terre Alte at first seems like an emotion, but it is an awareness. It is a friendship, a brotherhood, a love that flares intensely, stabilizes with time, then evolves and grows stronger over the years."
