2007 Channing Daughters “Tocai Friulano” The Hamptons Long Island *

The “only tocai friulano on Long Island,” this was refreshing, with a floral bouquet and tight, crisp palate.  The varietal “tocai friulano” is originally Italian, not Hungarian, and recent litigation has prevented wineries in Friulano from labeling their wines with the word “tocai.”  Apparently the EU decision doesn’t prevent a U.S. winery from using the name.
