A white wine made like a red, this skin-contact Tocai Friulano goes beyond the conventional and into orange wine territory.
This Tocai Friulano, a grape usually found in Italy, was made in the skin contact style - the way red wines are typically made. Fermented for two weeks, the wine then remained on its skins for sixty days - a long time for any wine, and white wine especially. After pressing, it was aged for six months in neutral oak, and the result is a complex, robust, textured white that--on the palate--is reminiscent of a red. It's a wine that suits both red and white enthusiasts alike.
Fruity, earthy and woody, this wine pairs well with poultry, pork, and veggies--the perfect wine for a spring dinner.
