Usonia Tocai Friulano 2021
Tocai Friulano is one of our favorite varieties in the world. We’re thrilled to work with the only planting of it here in the Finger Lakes. Fully skin-fermented, it exudes notes of pine resin, green peppercorn, and pineapple. It’s lush and textural, yet fresh and quaffable, a style we frankly didn’t think we’d ever achieve here in our cool climate. A portion of all Tocai Friulano sales will be donated to the Queer Farmer Network.
Hand harvested, destemmed, spontaneously fermented on the skins for roughly two weeks. Aged ⅔ in stainless steel and ⅓ in neutral barrel for 8 months. Sulfured after malolactic and at bottling. Unfined and unfiltered.
