Picolit is a rare varietal found almost exclusively in the north-eastern Italian region of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, particularly in Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC.

It is documented back to the 18th century as a producer of sweet white wine, not dissimilar in style to Bordeaux's Sauternes, due to orange botrytic characters, and widely acknowledged as one of Italy's most impressive sweet wines. Bready apricot notes characterise the nose while the elegant palate speaks more of marmalade fruit.
