Parentage of the grape: Unknown, but it has been proven through DNA testing that there is no relationship between this grape and either Hungarian Tokaji or Alsatian Tokay (Pinot Gris). It is, however, the same grape as Sauvignonasse.

History of the grape: Though Tocai Friulano was first mentioned in the 19th century, the grape in question was probably Furmint, perhaps sparking the association with Tokaji. In 1932, a new wine appeared under the same name. This one turned out to be the minor French grape Sauvignonasse, which is the variety grown under the name Tocai Friulano today.

    Really nice Italian Friulano. This was full of light lemon pith, a touch of creaminess along with the moderate acidity. Fairly smooth, well balanced and refreshing. Read More

    Fairly nice Italian DOC Friulano. There's a touch of mustiness on the nose but the palate has some interesting wet stone, spice and overripe lemon. Nice acidity and a fairly long minerally finish. Read More

Rather large scaled and rich in the mouth, this ends with so... Read More
