This Italian estate was founded in 1950 by Marco Felluga. Located in Gradisca d’Isonzo, a fortified citadel of the Venetian Republic, Marco’s son Roberto runs the winery. Felluga controls over 250 acres of vineyards, most of which are family owned and operated, within the Collio. The vineyards are planted on layers of sandstone, limestone and clay at an elevation of 262 feet. Roberto employs integrated pest management in the vineyards to protect the environment. White wines are filtered before fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. A percentage of white and red wines are refined in wooden casks. Winemaker Rafaella Bruno employs the latest technologies, while respecting tradition.

Tasting notes
Notes of ripe raspberries and wild blackberries aresupported by firm tannins, hints of violets and a persistent finish.

Technical notes
After destemming, the must macerated on its skins at cool temperatures and fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. The wine was aged for 12 months in large and small oak casks. The nose is both intense and compelling.

Other text
The wine’s name comes from the vineyard’s position. "Ronco" in Friulano language refers to a section on the hill and "moreri" to the mulberries that surround the vineyard. The Refosco varietal, considered one of our most interesting native red grapes, is characterized by a balance between structure and elegance.
