Friulano (formerly Tocai Friulano, and also known as Sauvignonasse) is a grape variety most famous for its role in the white wines of Friuli, northeastern Italy. These wines, usually varietal, are lively and fruit-driven with notes of citrus and almond, and often a touch of minerality.

The grape is thought to be native to South West France, where it is known as Sauvignonasse or Sauvignon Vert. However, it has moved on from its home and into northeastern Italy, where it has quickly become one of the region's most classic styles. 

Pairing Suggestions for Friulano:

* Pan-fried white fish with lemon butter and capers
* Prosciutto with rocket and mozzarella
* Roast chicken with thyme-infused stuffing
