Russiz Superiore Collio Bianco Col Disore
Russiz Superiore is the pride of the Marco Felluga family. The family's winegrowing dynasty
started in the late 1800s, when the current Marco Felluga's grandfather Marco recognized the
terrain's potential for cultivating grapes. Russiz Superiore is located in Capriva del Friuli, in the
heart of Collio. Its name comes from its position that rises above the surrounding hills. The estate
extends over 250 acres of which 125 acres are planted to vineyards. The vineyards are located in
four different villages in the Collio DOC – Farra, San Floriano, Oslavia and Cormons. Each hill has
a unique microclimate and the soil is rich in marl, loam and sandstone called flysch. The fruit is all
handpicked. The property is managed by Alessandra and Roberto Felluga, children of the Marco
Felluga. The winemaker is Rafaella Bruno.

structure and a silky texture that coats the palate.
|90 Points ~ International Wine Cellar "Bright yellow-gold. Deep aromas of yellow plum, fusel oil, flint, wet stone, bay leaf and licorice. Supple, sweet and rich, with an enticing layered texture and complex citrus and stone fruit flavors. Vibrant acidity cuts through the wine's creaminess and extends the finish. A hint of caramel stays in the background throughout."
