Friulano 2018

The roots of Friuli

Varietal

Tocai Friulano 100%

Every glass of the wine portrays the sea, the mountains that border the region, and the people that inhabit this land.

There are recurrent characteristics: the personality which is expressed with notes of almond, the delicacy of the scents of acacia blossom, and the softness of creamy notes that caress the palate. In 2007 the name Tocai Friulano changed into Friulano...but its native uniqueness did not.
