Name of varietal: Tocai Friulano (Friulano)

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.

  • Edi Keber Collio 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was vibrant, showing white flowers with paté brisee, honey, peach and hints of mineral stone. On the palate it had a medium body with silky textures and a balance of acidity and ripe fruits. Peach and melon were prominent with hint of vanilla. The finish was fresh, showing sweet peach that turned to bitter floral notes. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Complexity, full of notes of wax, wax flower, smoke, celery, juciey braised endvie and lemon/citrus fruit. Collio when it is at it´s best, where fat oliey viscosity is blended with lascivious acid and aromatic green elements and especially the required bitterness.Distinguished balance and superb intensity Read More

  • Radikon Jakot Tocai Friulano IGT 2005

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Millbrook Winery Tocai 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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
