From vines grown in Flysch di Cormons, (mixed sandstone and marls), fermented and aged in barrel. Pale gold robe. A touch shy aromatically upon opening. With a quick decant, the aromatic palette expands: scents of white flowers, golden delicious apple, orange oil, and honey vie with notes of wet stone and iron for prominence. On multilayered palate it displays flavors of stone fruit, acacia, Mirabelle plum, with a steely mineral character and a fine zesty acidity on the long, detailed finish. As with other bottles of Borgo del Tiglio from this era we've tasted, decanting the wine and following over an afternoon reveals a surprising amount of aromatic detail and textural complexity. Decanted and served a bit cooler than cellar temperature, this pairs beautifully with the local Prosciutto San Danielle, crab, and fresh cheeses. John McIlwain
