Sleek acidity is well-knit to flavors of poached pear and melon in this lithe, light-bodied white. Accents of almond blossom, Meyer lemon peel and stone play on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 400 cases imported.
Moderately intense straw-yellow. Its mineral scent combines with the smell of a cultivated garden (sage, flowers). It wins over the palate with full-bodied aromatic sensations that don’t only recall fruit, but more complex sensations. It finishes with the sharp sensation of toasted almonds." - Winery
More than any other, this wine truly expresses the territory for which it was named. In fact, in Friuli, ‘the Friuliano’ (which used to be called Tocai) is practically a synonym for white wine. Previously known as ‘Savignonassa’, due to its similarities to Sauvignon, it is destined to become standard bearer for enology in Friuli.
