2006 Bastianich Tocai Friulano

SKU #1034283

Joe and Lidia Bastianich are more than great restauranteurs (their empire includes a number of ventures with Iron Chef Mario Batali, including Pizzeria and Osteria Mozza in Los Angeles), they also own Bastianich Azienda Agricola in Italy's Friuli. Located in the Colli Orientali area, the region is known for its unique terroir and world class white wines. Tocai friuliano is an indigenous grape varietal grown in Friuli for hundreds of years. The vineyards for this bottling are located in the villages of Buttrio, Premariacco and Manzano and they are all handpicked. Medium-bodied, with ripe pear flavors with a refreshing mineral underpinning and zesty acidity, this wine is the perfect counterpoint to cured meats, full-flavored seafood dishes or with veal or pork dishes.

Additional Information:



- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. 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.
