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.

Wine SpectatorMouthwatering, with lush layers of ripe green melon, poached pear and apricot fruit underscored by zesty mineral notes that show hints of honeycomb, anise and candied ginger, backed by racy acidity. Drink now through 2022. 100 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Friuli Colli Orientali Friulano shows a luminous golden color and exudes fresh aromas of ripe honeydew melon, nectarine and blanched almond. This is a sensual and expressive white that spreads evenly over the palate. The mouth-feel shows a good level of density that is characteristic of this beautiful variety. Drink: 2014-2015.
