The story behind this wine is enough to make anyone want to sample it! Friulano from Friuli-Venezia-Giulia is traditionally known as Tocai Friuliano, for its native growing region Friuli. This grape is a member of the Sauvignon family. Like its more recognizable and well-traveled cousin, Sauvignon-Blanc, Tocai Friulano produces dry white wines with pronounced minerality, acidity and gentle fruitiness.
Thanks to the vagaries of European Union naming conventions, the Italians have been searching for a new name for Tocai since 2006. In 1993, after Hungary joined the European Union, they gained the rights to the name “Tokaji,” and all the variations in spelling (Tocai, Tokay, and several others). All this in spite of the fact that Hungarian Tokaji is a sweet dessert wine, with little in common with Tocai Friuliano apart from its color.
This vibrant orange wine is a brilliant amber-rose color with coppery tones due to 20 days of skin contact. The Pinot Grigio Ramato Vis Uvae by Il Carpino is a unique interpretation of this varietal that astounds with its complexity and aromatic finesse.
The Malvasia by Il Carpino is a well-structured and full-bodied orange wine, vinified like red wine: with long maceration, and aged in oak. It has rich and intense scents of dried fruit, honey, and yellow fruit in syrup. The taste is warm and full-bodied, smooth, and complex.
