Marco Felluga

40% Pinot Bianco

Production area: Village of Farra d’Isonzo in the Collio DOC.
Elevation: 80 m / 262 feet above sea level.

The Collio’s hilly terrain, formed during the Eocene period, is composed of layers of sandstone and loam rock (limestone and clay) that were once the ocean floor. Today the sea, which is about twenty kilometers (12 miles) away, and the nearby Alps send afternoon breezes over the vineyards, cooling the grapes after a warm day of sun. Proximity to mountains and sea, along with the mineral-rich but poor soils, create the ideal situation for producing complex, well-structured wines that are very age-worthy. These soils are impermeable so rainwater flows off their surface, producing little erosion and preventing standing water. “Molamatta” is the geographic name of the place where lie the vineyards. Depending on the level of ripeness of the different varieties, hand-picked grapes undergo a light pressing. The Pinot Bianco juice ferments and matures in small oak barrels while the remaining grapes are vinified in stainless steel vats. The wine is left to develop six months on the lees and some months in the bottle.
