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.
