Additional Information on Borgo m Friulano 2013

Winery: Borgo m

Varietal: Tocai Friulano

Travel to the northern Italian region of Friulia, and you'll no doubt be offered a glass of straw yellow wine made from the Tocai Fruiliano varietal grape, the most commonly cultivated grape of the area. Although it has been grown elsewhere (where it is usually known as Sauvignon Vert), the Tocai Fruiliano grape is most usually associated with northern Italy, where it has been popular for centuries and remains an important varietal to this day. The vines grow well on the sunny, well drained hillsides of the region, and the wineries which use the grape prize the varietal for its stunning bouquet of wild flowers. When it comes to flavors, the Tocai Fruiliano grape has a broad set – although citrus flavors such as lime and grapefruit are most commonly noted.

Region: Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Up in the north of Italy, between the magnificent Italian Alps and the Adriatic sea, we find the beautiful region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. This special region produces some of Italy's finest and most distinctive white wines, notable for their uniqueness and differences from the white wines found elsewhere in the country. Due to the region's proximity to Slovenia and Austria, it comes as no real surprise to find excellent Riesling and Pinot Bianco grapes growing in the vineyards of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, prized for their ability to capture the finest features of their wonderful alpine terroir. Friuli-Venezia Giulia prides itself on the fact it is characterized by small, independent wineries, dedicated to producing unusual and characterful wines which are the very essence of the cool, mountainous region they work with.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
