Tai - Tocai
Tocai Friulano is a white grape cultivated primarily in the Friuli region of Italy, but it also grows in the Veneto region. Not to be confused with Alsace's Tokai or the Hungarian Tokaji, this is the top Friuli native grape and since April 2007 it can no longer be called Tocai Friulan on any bottle labels sold outside of Italy that are now simply named Tai. Tai, depending on producer and terroir, can range from crisp to creamy, and from smoky to peppery.
