 Wine Spectator 90 points (Jun 15 2015)
Aromatic smoke, acacia blossom, pear and chopped hazelnut notes lace this rich version, while vibrant acidity keeps this light- to medium-bodied and lithe. Lacy finish. Drink now through 2020. 30,000 cases made.-AN
 Vinous 88 points (Jun 2015)
Felluga’s 2013 Pinot Grigio is decidedly exotic in style. Candied orange peel, mint, chamomile and spices blossom effortlessly in the glass. Texturally quite appealing, the 2013 is another wine that needs to be enjoyed over the next year or two.

Wine maker notes
Vintage 20013
Harvest method: Manual
Vinification: The grapes are carefully destemmed and left to macerate for a short period. Next, the fruit is soft crushed. The must obtained is then allowed to settle. The now-clarified must fermentes in temperatured controlled stainless steel tanks.
Ageing: After fermentation, the wine settles on the lees in the stainless steel containers for six months. The bottled wine is aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for a minimum of two months.

Appearance: yellow with light copper reflections
Nose: intense, harmonious and complex, with evident notes of citrus fruits, apricot and lime blossom, together with notes of flint, candied fruit, honey and biscuits.
Palate: smooth, long, with a great balance; complex aromas with hints of cherries, apple and mango integrated with elegant and strong mineral components.

Serving suggestions: A particularly good match for fish, seashell, risottos and baked vegetables.
Serving temperature: 12 - 14 °C

Other text
This celebrated variety derives from a bud mutation of Pinot Nero. As Pinot Grigio prefers cool climates, hillside vineyards are its ideal habitat. Modern vinification techniques give the wine finesse and elegance while preserving the faint coppery highlights that are Pinot Grigio’s hallmark. Without doubt, it is the best-known Friulian wine around the world.
