Collio Bianco Borgo del Tiglio 2018
Nicola Manferrari is a highly regarded winemaker throughout Italy for his ability to bring out the textural complexities of white varietals from Friuli. Fresh yet fuller in body and aged in oak barrels for a year before bottling.
The Collio is made from Tocai (Friulano), Sauvignon, and Riesling Renano. The blend was born in 1989, following a series of experimental blends when trying to create the first vintage of Studio di Bianco.
The Collio has become a collection of the various varieties Nicola works with and a snapshot of a particular vintage. The three varieties are particularly suitable to be vinifed together as they are complementary in many respects: the high acid quality of the Sauvignon and the Riesling balances the power and body of Tocai.
