A traditional Friuli dry white wine originally known as Tocai. This varietal is amoungst the most representative of the region.

Hillside vineyards with an eastern exposure.

Harvesting is done by hand into baskets at different times, the first part is harvested in early September, the remaining part 10 days later.

It is left to rest on the yeasts until March. Bottling is done the following spring.

Great with hors d’oeuvres, fish, snails as well as with white meats, and matchless with prosciutto. Friulano FCO is the classic Tajut (glass of wine) enjoyed with friends.
