Tocai Friulano

Tocai Friulano Wine Details
Price: $24.00 per bottle

Description: The Channing Daughters Tocai Friulano is the only one if its kind being produced on Long Island. The 2004 Tocai displays mineral, citrus, pineapple, fresh almond and savory spice notes on a wonderfully crisp, clean and focused framework. Medium-bodied with a great acid balance, this is a fleshy, juicy and persistent white wine. Fermented and matured in older French oak and stainless steel barrels, this wine has a lightness of being but profound depth of flavor. The finish lingers and its expressive character is cleansing and full. All the fruit was estate-grown, hand-harvested, whole cluster pressed and bottled by gravity. The quintessential prosciutto wine, our Tocai also pairs well with fried fish and shellfish, spring and summer vegetable dishes, Montasio cheese and all variety of pork. Salute!

Varietal Definition
Tocai Friulano:
Widely grown in the Fruili region of Italy. Also to be found in Argentina. Thought to be identical with the Sauvignon Vert grape grown in Chile. Used to produce lightbodied white wines with flowery and nut-like flavors and should be drunk when young.
