Tocai Friulano

Tocai Friulano [Tok-eye froo-LAH-noh]

Tocai Friulano (or just Fruliano) is known for producing crisp, floral wines. Pale Straw-yellow in color with wildflowers, notes of herbs, citrus and pears in the bouquet that develop into notes of nuts and fennel as it ages. Well balanced acidity heightens the flavors and gives it a long, clean finish. The grape was widely known as Tocai Friulano until 2006 when the European Union banned names that have some similarity or association with the Hungarian wine Tokaji.
