Winemaker Notes

A single-vineyard of sixty-year-old vines, on a perfectly exposed hilltop, yields an extreme example of our native Friulano. We concentrate the flavors of our old-vine Tocai by harvesting at optimum ripeness. Ten-percent of the harvested fruit undergoes an additional period of appassimento and, if conditions are right, an attack of the noble rot, botrytis, adding another layer of depth and complexity.

The nose is ripe and powerful, showing mature mandarin oranges, melons and pears. Similar in flavor and complexity to a "Grand Cru" Alsatian white.

Plus can be served with frito, scampi and raw fish in its youth, but is also fantastic with hot peppers and very spicy dishes (Indian and Thai). As it ages, it becomes a magnificent soft cheese companion - try it with the likes of Taleggio or Robiola.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Tocai Plus shows terrific depth and complexity in a bouquet of crushed rocks and flowers that melds into ripe, succulent peaches. This generous, textured white shows outstanding length on the palate, with attractive honeyed notes that linger on the finish.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Exhibits aromas of white peach and apple tart. Full-bodied, with tangy fruit and a long finish. Tangy and rich. Very lively.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Offers amazing intensity and layered aromas of honey, candied orange, caramel and butterscotch. The wine also delivers an interesting combination of sweet fruit flavors and a bitter almond close.

Bastianich Winery Image
The Bastianich winery, founded in 1997, strives to understand the history and culture of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and take it to a new level. We create unique wines that speak of place but, at the same time, show remarkable power and balance. Vespa Bianco and Vespa Rosso are named after the ever-present wasps attracted to ripe grapes. These blends are made in an area known for single-varietal wines, shifting the focus from the grape to the terroir. Calabrone, which means hornet, is an estate reserve red blend made only in the best vintages with hand-destemmed, partially dried fruit, and is released 5 years after the vintage. Native varieties, such as Tocai Friulano, are unblended to showcase the uniqueness of the grape. The pinnacle of this being Tocai Plus, a particularly complex example made with late-harvest and dried fruit from a single-vineyard of 60 year-old vines.
