2015 Tocai Friulano
The Tocai Fruilano was planted in 1994 on the Bien Nacido Vineyard property, very close to our production facility. In lesser grape growing areas this variety will set a large crop with little flavor, but in the cool Santa Maria Valley, the crop is small and intense and more importantly, the flavors and aromatics true to the variety. Tocai Fruilano is a floral wine with aromas of, green almond, honey and honey suckle and flavors of apple and pear. Traditional winemaking techniques give our Tocai added texture. Drink this wine as a starter for any meal or with lighter fare such as quiche or crab salad.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous
Score: 91 "The 2015 Tocai Friulano Borgo Buon Natale is gorgeous. Supple, radiant and generous, it offers terrific depth and textural richness. Apricot, peach pit, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes infuse the creamy, expressive finish. This is a terrific expression of Tocai."
