  • The prince of the Friulian white grape varieties is Friulano, and since it can no longer be called Tocai they have chosen the name Friulano as a testimony of the link with these lands. In Friuli Venezia Giulia when someone asks for a glass of Tajue, will be offered a glass of Friulano. This special wine is made with 100% Friulano from a 75 years old vine. Harvest with a selection of grapes, fermentation of grapes at a controlled temperature of 18° per 20 days, and maturation of the must in stainless steel vats for 8 months, further aging in bottle for 4 months. The color is intense straw yellow with an aroma of wildflowers and a hint of green apple, with overtones of citrus. The taste is rich in layers of fabulous taste, silky, savory, complex with a bitter almond aftertaste. It expresses its best in the 2 years after bottling, maintaining its features for at least 10 years. Paring suggestions; Ethnic fish cuisine, grilled fish with bone, first courses with fish sauces, and shellfish.

5 of 5 My absolute new favorit white Wine* September 14, 2021
Reviewer: Zack Fortuna from Seattle, Washington United States  
Lovely minerality with notes of almond, honey, citrus, and apple.   Powerful aroma and taste, intensity, sapidity, perfect balance with an elegant texture.
Complex and multilayered. Fresh and vibrant appearance but with a sweet touch.
