Bianco Collio, Borgo del Tiglio

Bianco Collio, Borgo del Tiglio

In the early 1980s winemaker Nicola Manferrari experimented blending Friulano with Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling; to compensate for Fruilano’s softer profile, this enabled him to ripen the Friulano grapes more than was common at the time. Today, he keeps this format for both this, his entry-level Collio white and his flagship wine Studio di Bianco. It’s fresh and laced with notes of peaches, apricots, lime and honey. Smooth and yet tangy with a firm minerality, it shows intense aromatics on a well-balanced palate.
