Additional Information on Torre Rosazza Colli Orientali Del Friuli Tocai Friulano 2013

Winery: Torre Rosazza

Varietal: Tocai Friulano

The Tocai Fruiliano grape varietal is the most widely planted and cultivated grape in the Friulia region of northern Italy, after which it is named. The name of Tocai Fruiliano has caused plenty of confusion and controversy over the years, but scientists have now confirmed that it is not a relative of either the Hungarian Tokaji grape, nor the Tokay d'Alsace, but is in fact the Sauvignon Vert varietal which is found elsewhere in Europe. The wines made from the Tocai Fruiliano varietal grape are renowned for their broad set of flavors, which generally include citrus lime notes amongst many others, their pale straw yellow color, and their powerful bouquet of wild flowers. This varietal grows well on the sunny hillsides of northern Italy, and has had some success in the New World.

Region: Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Situated in the north of Italy, between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, Friuli-Venezia Giulia is a fascinating and ancient wine region which is only just being discovered by the international wine audiences, keen to uncover more lesser known gems of Italy. Because Friuli-Venezia Giulia is so close to the Austrian and Slovenian borders, the wines there display a distinctly Germanic character, and typically Germanic grape varietals such as Riesling grow extremely well there, and capture much of their stunning alpine terroir. As such, alpine freshness, crystal clear mountain water and beautifully dry and crisp notes are what Friuli-Venezia Giulia's wines are most renowned for, and the Riesling, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Grigio wines of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, made by small, dedicated and traditional wineries, are considered amongst the finest in the world.

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.
