ITALIAN FINE WHITE WINE
The earliest physical evidence of Tocai Friulano grapes growing in the area dates back to the year 1632, when 300 vines had been placed on a marriage dowry. Until the year 2007 this grape was called Tocai, then following the European Union rules it was renamed to Friulano. The Gigante family inherited those very old vines, which have been part of the story of the Corno di Rosazzo area, during the 1950’s and have nurtured them like a child ever since.
Starting from the first harvests, the vines have shown their prodigious potential, and their grapes stood out from the rest. The Friulano wine became the wine that started the marvellous story of Gigante winery; today it is considered to be one of the most classical wines from the Friuli Region.
