2006 Venica Collio Tocai Friulano "Ronco delle Cime"

SKU #1031248

100% Tocai Friulano, not to be confused with the Hungarian Tocai or the Tokay d'Alsace (which is pinot gris). Ronco delle Cime means vineyards of the peaks, and these vineyards are the highest in the property (300-400 meters) as well as the oldest (50 years old). This wine shows typical aromas reminiscent of fresh almonds, walnuts, candy and cloves. The taste has a velvet soft texture due to its inherent low acidity with flavors that remind one of quince, curry and bitter almonds.

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
