Marco Felluga Collio Molamatta 2015
Beautiful and lively
This lush white wine blend from Marco Felluga rated 93 on Robert Parker, and is beautiful and lively, evoking both spring and summer at once.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
A gorgeous golden yellow color, this blend of Pinot Bianco, Friulano, and Ribolla Gialla grape varieties develops a beautiful sweetness over time. It’s well-structured, with a lively acidity.
Aromas of apple and pear greet you, with soft notes of floral, peach, and citrus. On the palate, it gives tropical fruit, pear, apple, and peach. It’s a very fresh and refreshing white wine, with mineral notes and balanced flavor.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
The Molamatta is very versatile. Pair it with cheeses like pecorino, provolone, halloumi, and manchego. Prosciutto, jamon iberico, and mortadella are some cured meats to add to your charcuterie that would work very well with it.
PRIDE OF COLLIO
Collio became home to the Felluga family (whose wine industry lineage dates back to the 1800s) after they lost their property in Istria following World War II. Marco Felluga graduated from a renowned enology school in Conegliano, and opened his own winery in 1956, following his brother who opened his own in Rosazzo.
In 1967, Marco purchased the estate Russiz Superiore, was about five miles from Gradisca d’Isonzo, where his eponymous winery is located. This added 125 acres of cru-level vineyards to the Felluga business. He decided to operate it as a separate entity, but still owned by the family.
Both Marco Felluga winery and Russiz Superiore are the top wine producers in Collio, an Italian hotbed of white wine production.
