Until a few years ago the Friulano vine took the historical and famous name of Tocai Friulano. Some agreements between Italy and the European Union of 1993 have forbidden the use of the name "Tocai" since March 2007, as it is too similar to that of the Hungarian controlled denomination of origin of Tokaji wine and to the homonymous production area. The resemblance is relative only and exclusively to the name as the Tocai Friulano and the Hungarian Tokaji are completely different as wines in color, aroma, taste and as methods of production, and as vines (Tokaji wine is typically produced from the Furmint, Hárslevelü vines) and Sárgamuskotály, which is a Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains). To consider also that the Hungarian Tokaji is not a single wine, but various wines coming from the same area of the city of Tokaj as it is a DOP with different types of wine.
