A delightful traditional varietal with a cheeky name here to bring us summertime smiles.
WHAT WE TASTE
Papaya, prickly pears, sunshine
Sandwiched between Veneto and Friuli, this family operation combines old-school tradition with cool new techniques that second-generation Rebecca Valent picked up while studying in the USA. Dad, Giuliano, who was trained by his dad, says he was ‘born in the bottle’, and he and his wife, Adriana, (and now their daughters) have dedicated much of their career to shining a light on proudly local varietals like Lison (also known as Tai, also known as Friulano, also known as Tocai…you get the picture).
Grape: Tai (or Tocai Friulano)
Style: Slightly sweet, totally delightful
