Nose

It is an especially floral wine, with an herb-flecked perfume reminiscent of newly opened citrus blossoms. Though the variety’s Northeast Italian origin is inland, its expression is dominated by Mediterranean aromas and flavors. Aromatically it is intensely floral with beautiful saline and sea foam notes.

Palate

In the mouth it is broad and juicy -- almost tropical – with a Meyer lemon zest and bitter almond finish that refreshes the palate.

Growing Conditions

Tocai is a wonderful wine to smell and taste. Though the variety’s Northeast Italian origin is inland, its expression is dominated by Mediterranean aromas and flavors. The 2016 is a soft and open-knit wine that should be drunk upon release while it still maintains the purity of its aromas and flavors and the vibrancy of its youth. S O I L P R O F I L E : PLEASANTON LOAM (CLAY) Due to limited availability our Tocai Friulano is offered on an allocated basis. Please inquire.
