Knotty and gnarled grapevines express themselves in a balanced and graceful wine, whose typicality discloses to the palate in a soft almond aftertaste. Its lightness perfectly matched the original name of this wine: “Tocai”; today it represents the personality of those who produce it, defining itself simply Friulano.
