"Make no mistake about it, these are some of the most compelling whites being made anywhere in Italy...."Antonio Galloni So what do you pair with one of the most "compelling whites made anywhere?" How about grilled swordfish or your favorite ravioli with a toasted butter and sage sauce? For sure!
Borgo del Tiglio makes a few outstanding white blends. We tasted through the current line-up, but the one that stood out among them all was the "Collio," a blend of Tocai Friulano and Sauvignon Blanc. It is a wonderfully dry yet expressive white wine. This particular vintage of their Tocai blend boasts gorgeous aromatics. The wine offers white flower, hints of toasted almond and young pear. A dash of Sauvignon Blanc in the blend adds zest and minerality. The combination is utterly delightful.
Many wine insiders consider Borgo del Tiglio to be one of the finest wine producers of the Collio region. That's because their white wines "capture the essence of some of Friuli’s most compelling terroirs." Antonio Galloni Borgo del Tiglio's vineyard location allows the grapes to reach optimal ripeness, impossible to attain in other areas of Friuli. It is a lush yet balanced white laced with young peach, pear, slate and wet stone minerality. It has an inviting finish that will bring you back for more.
