Alternative name for the Tocai Friulano grape of northern Italy. Also known there, and in France and Argentina, as Sauvignonasse. Widely planted in the Friulia region of Italy, this variety is used to make a flavorful, pale straw-yellow, balanced wine designed to be drunk early. In California the grape known as Sauvignon Vert is probably a Muscadelle variety clone.
