Maculan Pino & Toi 2018 (750ml/12)
Founded in 1947 in Breganze, a small town in the Province of Vicenza (Veneto), Maculan is now at the 3rd Generation of winemakers. Fausto Maculan, who took over in the 1970s and made Maculan a benchmark producer in Italy, has passed the baton to his two daughters: Angela and Maria Vittoria. In pure Breganze style, Maculan makes wines from both native and “international” varieties, which have been introduced by the French and the Austrians in 1800, and hence here are considered traditional. ...New York, New Jersey, California
An original blend of estate-grown 60% Tai (the local name for Friulano), 25% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Grigio, all fermented separately in temp-controlled stainless-steel tanks with selected yeasts. The wines are then assembled into the final blend and released after a brief aging in bottle.
The uniqueness of this wine comes from the originality of the blend: the Tai provides for the tropical fruit flavors, the Pinot Bianco for the pear and white flowers aromas, while the Pinot Grigio adds to the body and the tropical fruit finish. A versatile dry Italian white wine that goes extremely well with light pastas, risotto and light antipasti. Pino & Toi is Maculan’s most well-known white wine.
