After Italy's loss of a lawsuit, "Friulano" became the new name of "Tocai", a wine produced usually in a sweet form in Hungary. This varietal, native to the area of the Austro-Hungarian Empire crossing into the borders of what is now Friuli is dry and delicate with slight undertones of wildflowers and almonds and good structure.
This Friulano by Ronc dai Luchis is an excellent introduction to the grape if you are not already familiar. Fine and delicate with a delightful aroma of wildflowers and nuts, you won't miss the typical almond note we've come to love with Friulano.
