Terre Alte was created back in 1981 with a sophisticated mix of grape varieties: Friulano, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon all grown in Rosazzo, on the Colli Orientali – Friulian Oriental Hills and belonging to the Rosazzo Docg area of Denomination of Controlled Origin. Livio Felluga was the mastermind behind its success, and as he passed away in 2016 his firm in Brazzano, near Cormòns (Gorizia), one of the most celebrated wineries in Friuli, was handed down to his offsprings Maurizio, Elda, Andrea and Filippo.
All Friulian “three glasses” by Gambero Rosso's Vini d'Italia 2022
26 wines from Friuli Venezia Giulia were awarded the three-glasses highest score by Gambero Rosso's wine guide, and 25 of them are white wines, thus confirming Friuli's special devotion to this kind of blends and varieties, many of which are native ones.
A real exceptional choice is Tal Luc Cuvée 5.6 by Lis Neris, one of the very few sweet wines to be awarded in the guide. The only red wine from Friuli to get three glasses is Cabernet Franc ’18 by Le Monde (belonging to the DOC Friuli area). Other Friulian winemakers awarded with the top score for their white wines are among the most famous regional brands, like Borgo Conventi (with Collio Friulano 2020), Jermann (Vintage Tunina 2019), Vie di Romans (Friuli Isonzo Sauvignon Vieris 2019), Torre Rosazza (FCO Friulano 2020) or Schiopetto (Collio Friulano 2020).
