2021 Felugan La Feliciana
I wrote up the 2020 vintage of this wine in MoneyWeek Wine Club last November and loved the flavours and persistence on the palate. So, it is exciting to announce that this wine is ever finer than last year’s model, with more bite and attack on the finish. While I adore the Lugana from Ca’ dei Frati, it is a fiver more a bottle, so if you are after a tasty alternative, La Feliciana is the wine for you. Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Jul 2022)

A very inviting nose of firm pear fruit and yellow plum with verbena notes. On the palate this is bright with lively lemon cut and spicy, softer yellow flesh. Delightfully perky but with texture too, the palate shows nice firmness to the fruit, a comfortable weight and good depth. There is a reassuring, firm line of minerality underpinning everything, adding such focus and its backed by lovely juicy acidity. A summer in the garden wine you will keep coming back to! Although a mystery for a long time - we now know that this grape variety - Turbiana - is the same as Verdicchio - but the expression here is very distinct.L&S (Jun 2022)
La Feliciana is a small winery south of Lake Garda, in the Commune of Pozzolengo, and remarkably peaceful, with gentle rolling hills and vineyards stretching off into the distance; the only thing that would make you wonder if it has always been this way is the massive stone tower built on a low hill a couple of miles away: It's the monument to the Battle of San Martino, fought by the Piemontese against half of the Austrian army while their French allies were fighting the other half at Solferino, a few miles away.
