Although the original vineyard planted its first roots back in the 1800s, the Marco Felluga Winery was formally established in 1956. Today, owner Roberto Felluga and vintner Raffaella Bruno produce some of the most splendid award-winning wines in the area thanks to a combination of their experience handling the grape, the mineral-rich soil and the estate’s close proximity to the Adriatic coast.

A signature varietal from the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Italy’s upper northeast, Collio Mongris Pinot Grigio DOC is golden-yellow in color with copper tones. It’s bouquet is intense and immediate with hints of acacia flowers, golden apples and rosemary. On the palate, it is elegantly fruity, full bodied and well structured with a remarkably long finish.

Collio Mongris Pinot Grigio DOC pairs well with all types of fish-based antipasto, soups, pasta dishes — like our very own Spaghetti con Gamberetti in aglio, olio e peperoncino — and grilled main courses, but goes especially well with crustaceans and mollusks. Aside from complimenting the dinner table, Pinot Grigio is one of the Bel Paese’s preferred wines to have as a midday or early evening aperitivo (aperitif).

SALUTE!
