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. - By Eric Guido on January 2023 The 2021s from Borgo del Tiglio are flat-out stunning perfectly blending the warm vintage with their energetic style of pure fruit infused with crystalline minerality. In fact the 2021 Studio di Bianco is one of the most exciting wines I have ever tasted here and the Sauvignon Dark Label doesn?t fall far behind. As for the 2020s they are an excellent effort in a year that seems to be full of ups and downs even within a single producer's portfolio. I found the Ronco della Chiesa (Friulano) to be a huge standout in this vintage. The 2018 Rosso della Centa (Merlot) is a classic for the reds. It comes across as an old-school cool-climate Merlot and will surely enjoy a long life. Borgo del Tiglio remains one of the reference point producers in Friuli with a traditionally-styled portfolio that many other winemakers strive to replicate yet seldom do.
