2010 Urban Legend Cellars Chiles Valley Tocai Friulano

SKU #1073862

A fantastic interpretation of this Northern Italian grape from Nichelini Vineyards in Napa's Chiles Valley, and equally at home with an affetati (cured meat) platter. In fact, say the words Tocai Friulano, and fans of the grape will probably start drooling at the thought of pairing it with rose-colored Prosciutto di San Daniele and crostini. Bright acid, stone fruits, pears and citrus come through on the nose and appear again on the palate, which is minerally, lean and slightly saline. Only 104 cases produced.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Napa Valley

- America's most famous wine region, which encompasses a varied geographical territory running about 20 miles long from the San Francisco Bay northward to the foot of Mount St. Helena. Napa's great diversity, both in terms of climate and terroir, has led to the creation of a number of smaller AVAs like Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Oakville and Mount Veeder, among others. Cabernet and chardonnay still reign supreme, but just about everything under the sun is grown in Napa Valley, in quality levels ranging from $2 jug wine to $500 a bottle California cab.
