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.

  • Radikon Jakot Tocai Friulano IGT 2005


    The nose was enticing and with each sniff, seemed to change and evolve as sweet exotic spices, roasted nuts and dried apricot filled the senses. On the palate, it was full-bodied yet lively with zesty acidity ushering in flavors of tart pit fruits, orange preserves, flower petals and earthy minerals. The finish was long, clinging to the palate. ... Read More

    Wow, NY wines have come a long way since I was in college. This was pleasant, light on its feet. There was a little nutty presence and a lychee note, a little white peach and Asian pear. Enough fruit on the back end to give a sense of sweetness but not sweet--and just enough white gravel to give it a little minerality. Read More

  • Larkmead Vineyards Tocai Friulano Napa Valley 2010


    The nose was rich yet fresh like spring with a bouquet of white flowers, minerals, apricot, almonds and butter. On the palate it was full and luxurious with inner floral and spice notes, a hint of herbs and white pit fruits. It coated the palate before being wisp'd away by the wines vibrant acidity. The finish was long with lingering flowers and... Read More
