The Riserva from Zuani is the top of the crop which spends nearly a year in barrel. This small production is a rare treat and takes some time to hit its stride. This 2015 is now right there. A delicately toasty nose with vanilla and touch of tropical fruit and some creamy, ripe stone-fruits. Broad and rich, creamy, thick fruit texture, peach and yellow plum. Finishes long and gently spicy. Impressive. Drinking range: 2018 - 2028 L&S (Apr 2018)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Cedary oak has dampened down the fruit compared with the Vigne Bianco 2017 and the oak is a bit too obvious on the palate, for now at least, but it gives a wine that is both creamy and fruity and the finish is very long with a sour-fruited freshness to cut through the oak. May well age longer than this. Drinking range: 2019 - 2023 Rating: 17 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(May 2019)


Just over 12 years ago Patrizia Felluga left the family business in order to buy her own property in the heart of the Collio and set about her ambition of making a 'terroir' based wine. Working now with her two children she is creating beautiful, crystaline wines with great character. Her seven hectares are planted with fifteen to thirty year old Friulano, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon vines, from which she produces just two wines, each the same blend, one of which is oaked. Each variety is vinified separately in stainless steel and blended to make wines which are wonderfully expressive of the vineyard.
