Sauvignon Blanc Collio, Borgo del Tiglio

Sauvignon Blanc Collio, Borgo del Tiglio

A good deal of Borgo del Tiglio's winemaking philosophy could be summarised by the phrase ‘maturity is the key to terroir expression’. Harvesting at the right moment is a key aspect in the production of this complex, long-lasting Sauvignon Blanc. Nurturing the grape to full ripeness allows the flavours to develop and a profile of white peach and blackcurrant, rather than asparagus and other green vegetables appears on the attack. Vinification takes place in oak, providing a softness rather than flavour aspect, the finish shows notes of sage, smoke and tomato leaf.
