Ronco Dei Tassi Friulano Collio DOC

Fruilano (the locals still call it Tocai despite the 2007 ruling to ban the use of “Tocai” on the label) is the Fruili region’s most important grape. This white wine is intense and fruity on the nose with elegant perfumes of acacia flowers. In the mouth, it is fleshy and rich with a creamy texture and distinct varietal notes of citrus, pear, liquorice and almond and the classic minerality of the Collio.

Wine Enthusiast on 2019 vintage

Delicate scents evoking yellow peach, citrus, and spring blossom aromas come together on this savory, enveloping white. The fresh, medium-bodied palate shows ripe pear, grapefruit, apricot and a hint of fresh bread dough alongside tangy acidity. It closes on a hazelnut note.

James Suckling on 2018 vintage

A dense and layered white with aromas and flavors of sliced lemons and limes. Medium body. Tangy and crisp. Drink now.

James Suckling on 2017 vintage

Intense dried-herb and grassy character and overtones of grapefruit and gooseberries give this immediate sauvignon blanc-like appeal. The full bodied-palate is quite composed, though, with an elegant strand of acidity cutting through the round, textured fruit. Drink now.

James Suckling on 2016 vintage

The fresh lemony nose doesn’t show what a striking wine this is at first. There's a serious structure and bright acidity in this clean yet multilayered dry white. It defies all the conventional categories. A crisp and complex finish, which suggests this is just beginning to give its best. Drink or hold.

Vinous Media on 2016 vintage

Straw green. Delicate herbs, lime and floral aromas on the enticing nose. Then clean fresh and juicy, with outstanding inner-mouth perfume to the ripe pomaceous orchard fruit flavors. Finishes long with a whisper of pear, minerals, sweet spices and noteworthy clarity. A knockout Friulano.

James Suckling on 2013 vintage

A drier style of friulano with sliced pear and apple character. Some peach skin. Medium to full body. Delicious fruit at the finish. Drink now

James Suckling on 2010 vintage

A fresh and tangy white, with dried peach and apples that follow through to a full body, with dry and mineally finish. Lots of character. Drink now.
