The 2019 Ronco della Chiesa is smoky yet elegant in the glass with flinty crushed peaches nuances of sweet spice and wet stone. It?s silky and polished in feel with a lovely inner sweetness and a slight tropical tone to its fruit yet the balance is on point. The 2019 finishes long and floral leaving hints of melon. This is an interesting vintage of Ronco della Chiesa a varietal Friulano as it has a distinctive confectionary character yet comes across as completely harmonious. - By Eric Guido on April 2022 The current release 2019s from Borgo del Tiglio were very exciting to taste. This was a vintage of ups and downs with a warm and dry winter a cool and rainy spring and a hot summer. However the climate cooperated with growers through late August and into harvest with strong diurnal shifts and cooler temperatures that brought balance. The result is a set of young wines with more textural richness and vivid fruit than you usually expect at this early stage yet they don?t come across as warm-vintage wines. Instead there?s a harmony of fruit acids and minerals that will promise many years of positive development. I tasted the 2019 Studio di Bianco from two separate bottles one of which was opened the previous day and showed no sign of decline. Only in the case of the 2019 Ronco della Chiesa a varietal Friulano did I find some confectionary tones. Granted the Brazzano cru that informs the Ronco della Chiesa surrounds the winery itself and is known to be the warmest location Borgo del Tiglio sources from whereas the Collio Bianco and the single-vineyard Studio di Bianco come from a cooler location further into the hills near the small village of Ruttars.
