The 2019 Studio di Bianco opens slowly in the glass remarkably pretty and refined with dusty yellow flowers that give way to hints of flint and freshly sliced nectarine. Further coaxing brings forward hints of dried peaches and incense. It?s silky and polished in feel yet youthfully inward with mineral-tinged orchard fruits and inner florals that somehow have a dusty character. This tapers off structured yet long with a sweet melon note that lingers on and on. The 2019 is completely harmonious with a stunning blend of sapid fruit and brilliant acidity. It should mature beautifully in collectors? cellars. This was tasted both from a freshly opened bottle and one that was opened 24 hours prior which only helped the wine to blossom further. The Studio di Bianco is a blend of 40% Friulano 35% Sauvignon and 35% Riesling depending on the vintage. - 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.
