Rosso Collio Riserva, Borgo del Tiglio

Rosso Collio Riserva, Borgo del Tiglio

First produced in the early 1980s, this was a revolution in Friuli: the first Merlot aged in barriques; the Merlot is balanced with about 20% Cabernet in the blend. The grapes come from a small, old, steep terraced vineyard of about a hectare; with a typical Collio soil of marl and sandstone strata. This is an elegant red wine with an enchanting aroma of black fruits, berries and spice, and rich, fruity, velvety palate with hints of oak. After harvesting the berries are fermented in small open oak barrels;
