Tocai Friulano

Common synonyms: Blanc doux, Cinquien, Istarski Tokay, Malaga, Mosler, Sauvignon de la Correze, Sauvignon gros, Sauvignon à gros grains, Sauvignonasse, Sauvignonazz, Sauvignon vert, Tocai bianco, Tocai Italico, Tokai Italiano, Tokay, Trebbianello

  • Millbrook Winery Tocai 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nicely aromatic with notes of tree bark, herb and a hint of minty spice accenting the pear and white peach fruit. A lot of trapped CO2 here lends this a bit of a spritz on the palate. Nice, fairly rich feel in the mouth, this has classic bitter apple, pear, almond and subtle herb flavors. The acid is bright but well integrated lending this a lar... Read More
