Additional Information on La Castellada Tocai 2004

Winery: La Castellada

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

Friuli-Venezia Giulia is an important Italian wine region, situated high in the northernmost parts of the country, and close to the Slovenian and Austrian borders. As such, there is a considerable Germanic influence on the wines of this region, with varietals such as Riesling growing alongside Italian classics such as Pinot Grigio. The finest wines of Friuli-Venezia Giulia are considered to be those which capture the alpine essence of the region, with its pine scented terroirs and crystal mountain waters which run down from the mountains. There are also several interesting lesser known grape varietals processed in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, which gives the region a unique wine culture which the local wine makers are immensely proud of, and which makes the region a fascinating one to explore.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
