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 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."

Ronco Dei Tassi Sauvignon Blanc Collio DOC 2018

James Suckling (90)- "Very attractive sliced apples and pears with hints of lemons, and there isn't that much green, varietal character-for better or worse. Taut and clear-cut on the medium-bodied palate, which is citrusy and mineral. Drink now. "

James Suckling (92)- "A stylish sauvignon with sliced pear, lime and hints of stone. Spice, too. Medium to full body, firm and lightly chewy. Flavorful finish. Hints of mineral undertones. Drink now."
