Friulano is a traditional Italian white wine grape variety mostly planted in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. Originally called Tocai Friulano, the name had to be changed after a legal battle in which a court ruled that the name Tokay, and relevant permutations, can only be used for wines made in the Tokaj region of Hungary. Despite the ruling, Friulano wines have been at the centre of the Friuli Venezia Giulia wine-making industry for centuries. Light to medium-bodied, Friulano wines are dry and typically boast aromas of green apple, meadow flowers and pears with notes of honey and almond.
