Have you had your Tocai [toe´ ki] today? This grape has been grown for several centuries in the Friuli Province in Northeastern Italy and is known as the “brother of the Sauvignon” because of the growing characteristics of its vines; however, that is where all similarity ends. Under the artistry of Gregory Graziano, this grape is crafted into a rich, fragrant wine brimming with honey, floral and intense fruit.

A bouquet of ripe lemon, grapefruit and honeysuckle are followed with an engaging spicy crispness on the palate wrapped in toasty, creamy oak. Full-bodied and well balanced with a backbone of acidity, this luscious wine unfolds in your mouth with a pleasingly long finish. Enjoy this bottle of Graziano Tocai with friends on a warm summer evening or lazy autumn afternoon paired with east-west fusion cuisine or a bowl of garlic and basil clams.
