Valle, Friuli

Another excellent Tocai and one which recent experience has shown benefits from considerable aeration. There is a purity and minerality here that will always be attractive to the more cerebral palate and yet sufficient white fruits and succulence to hold the interest of the hedonist.

The Valle estate

One of the region's pioneers of cold fermentation techniques and the use of stainless steel vats to maintain the freshness of delicate white varietals, Gigi Valle is also a stalwart champion of indigenous local grapes like Ribolla Gialla, (Tocai) Friulano and Refosco. The winemaking here, overseen by Paolo, Gigi's son is a great testament to both innovation and tradition - put simply: Valle make old wines better.
