Marco Felluga Merlot

Overview

One of the most interesting hotbeds of white-wine production in Italy is Collio Goriziano, a stretch of the hilly border of Friuli with Slovenia. The Felluga family traces its wine industry lineage to the late 1800s, when Roberto Felluga’s great-great-grandfather Michele started a business buying and selling wines in Istria (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire). Michele’s son Marco added winemaking to the business, growing grapes and making some wine on the family farm just south of Trieste in what is now southwestern Slovenia.
 
Merlot "Varneri" by Marco Felluga is an intense and purely fruited red wine, aged in small and big oak barrels for 12 months. Perfumed red-berry jam and Morello cherries, cedar, cola & lingering vanilla notes. The palate is fleshy, pure & beautifully balanced. Medium to full-bodied, warm red fruits, cola and spice and finishes with well-integrated & silky tannins.
