From the Critics:
- "The 2010 Collio Bianco is Friulano, Sauvignon and Riesling Renano, much of which is a second selection from the flagship Studio di Bianco. The 2010 is a gorgeous, lush white laced with peaches, apricots, slate, floral honey and mint. This round, expressive wine is best enjoyed while the fruit retains its juiciness. I especially like the caressing, totally inviting finish. The Collio Bianco is a lovely entry-level offering from Borgo del Tiglio. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
My wife and I sat down for a late summer dinner at L’Androna, the best restaurant in Grado, a gorgeous seaside town in Friuli. I had just returned the day before from two weeks in Burgundy, where I tasted just about every great 2009 white Burgundy, including virtually all of the benchmarks. Within that context, the next white I tasted should have been disappointing. Instead it was a revelation. The wine? Borgo del Tiglio’s 2009 old-vine Friulano Ronco della Chiesa. On this night, the Ronco della Chiesa was every bit the equal of the vast majority of the wines I tasted in Burgundy, and frankly far better than the average. Proprietor Nicola Manferrari is one of the leading lights in Friuli. His wines deserve far more recognition than they typically receive. Make no mistake about it, these are some of the most compelling whites being made anywhere in Italy." -
