Wine Details

Ronco Dei Tassi Sauvignon Blanc Collio DOC

A particularly versatile white wine, this Sauvignon is the result of the particular characteristics of its terroir of origin, the Friuli hills adjacent to the Plessiva Natural Park. Straw yellow in color, intense fruit and floral aromas of grapefruit, elderberry flowers and freshly cut grass lead the way. A full-bodied mouth with a brisk acidity supports notes of citrus (tangerine, grapefruit) and an appealing minerality.

Ronco Dei Tassi Sauvignon Blanc Collio DOC 2019

Wine Advocate (91)- "The Ronco dei Tassi 2019 Collio Sauvignon is a classic expression of this aromatic grape that pays tribute to the northern Italian territory that shaped it. The wine is varietally pure with tropical tones of lime, lemongrass and bitter almond. However, it also brings in the slightly creamy or soft textural richness that is a hallmark of the whites made in this mountainous corner of the peninsula. This is a crisp, tangy wine with loads of personality to pair with takeout Thai green curry. Some 20,000 bottles of this vintage were produced."

James Suckling (91)- "Ripe-pear, pineapple, fresh-herb and lemon-curd aromas. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity and a gently waxy texture. Focused with a mineral finish. Drink now."

Ronco Dei Tassi Sauvignon Blanc Collio DOC 2019

Wine Enthusiast (91)- "This bright, elegant white has rather restrained varietal aromas evoking hawthorn, hay, citrus and wild herb. It's racy and tangy, featuring white grapefruit, green melon and flinty mineral flavors alongside crisp acidity."
