Borgo del Tiglio is one of Italy's great white wine producers. This bottling is the flagship wine and is a single-vineyard located near the farmhouse of the estate. The soils here are Ponca. Being so close to the Slovenian border the Collio shares many similarities in climate, varietals used, wine-making techniques and soils. The ponca (or flysch) runs between both countries and is a soil of marl with layers of minerals, clay, marine deposits, calcium and limestone. The wine ages in french barriques. Apples, pears and an intense minerality.
