Picolit is from Friuli on NE Italy. It is used to make high quality sweet white wines.
Picolit is quite a rare wine variety, mainly because it yields so poorly in the vineyard. In Italy it is nearly always used to make sweet wines, dry whites are very rare.
Often the grapes are dried either on straw mats or by leaving them hanging on the vine for extended periods. Sometimes the grapes are botrytis affected.
Picolit wines are invariably very expensive. Except for the very best wines they are overpriced.
Small amounts of Picolit are planted in Slovenia and just a few are Australian producers have this variety.
