Collio, Friuli Venezia Giulia

Borgo del Tiglio (Nicola Manferrari)

Rosso Riserva Collio Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2009

Classy, reticent nose of incence, grilled meat, minerals and spice. On the palate dark fruit, coffeebeans, black truffles and a dash of toasted oak are added. Very balanced and well composed. Excellent wine! — 13 days ago

I was thinking Corton-Charlemagne all night drinking this concentrated yet airy Friulian interpretation of Burgundies finest white wines. Enzo Pontoni is a master on so many levels and even in this rather warm vintage, his wines capture true complexity and multiple layers of flavour. No rush here. — 8 days ago

Orange blossom, wet slate, clover honey and apricot. Rounded, resolved palate. Lacks the nuance I have had from other examples. — 10 days ago

Bianco Breg Collio White Blend 2005

😋 05 definitely gaining greatness in the bottle. Shows better than the last one I tasted. Still time to shine, I’m thinking at 20 years this will be killer. Set the reminder 🚨 for 2025. — a month ago

Rosso Breg Red Blend 2005

Whoa! Getting my Pignolo on! Drop dead gorgeous, with power and finesse in spades. Tannin, acid, and fruit all in balance and en fuego. A streak of balsamic in the mix, which opens up a ton of food pairing options, especially at an Italian restaurant. 😉 — 13 days ago

Venezia Giulia Ribolla Gialla

Paired this with grilled 🐙 & it was a pleasure. From a producer who had been making orange wine for a long time, his son and wife have taken the reigns, since his passing & I plan to revisit this producer down the road to see. — 17 days ago
