2023/9. Classically styled Chardonnay- lemon, cream, stone, with any oak not noticeable. There might be a twinge of something salty that makes it seem Adriatic… — 3 months ago
Really a Franciacorta without the DOCG designation from the region’s rapidly rising star winemaker. 40 months (or 40 moons as the winemaker prefers to call it) on lees. Native yeast.
Expressive and complex on the nose with baked apple, lime, sour cherry, bread dough, and seashell, and just hint of oxidative note. The entry was overwhelmed by the high acidity initially, but settled with good texture and depth of flavor.
70/30 Chard/PN. Quattrocento refers to the approximate altitude of the vineyard. — 5 months ago
Another great Borgo del Tiglio wine mixing many flavors to start with white fruit and citrus and then transition to vanilla and cream. There is a salinity in this wine making it perfect with olives and oily fish. — 9 months ago
Absolutely stunning. So much going on. Floral hints on the nose, the wine has an incredible weight on the palate. On oily, salt start, keeps going to fruit and floral notes. Just an incredible white wine. — 7 months ago
Beautiful, crisp and delicious. — a year ago
Good Friulano mix with a little too much alcohol in the finish. — 4 months ago

Crushed apples and sage mix with tropical florals as the 2020 Ronco della Chiesa comes to life in the glass. This is soothing on the palate with its soft textures, yet it is also stimulating. A blend of sour citrus and minerals adds tension toward the close. This takes on a bit of a tropical flair through the finish, hinting at fresh vanilla bean and ripe melon. While the 2020 comes across as highly appealing today, there's a core of underlying power here that promises even better things to come. The Ronco della Chiesa is a varietal Tocai Friulano and one of the standouts from the 2020 portfolio at Borgo del Tiglio. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2023) — 7 months ago
