Borgo del Tiglio
Borgo del Tiglio is one of the world’s greatest estates operated by Nicola Manferrari. Known for crafting brilliant, chiseled whites built on saline-infused minerality and energy that capture the essence of some of Friuli.
Borgo del Tiglio is located in Cormòns, right in the heart of the Friulian Collio. Like so many small, artisan wineries, the property is essentially a combination of home, farm and winery.
Nicola Manferrari is one of Friuli’s original trailblazers. Borgo del Tiglio is a towering presence of true excellence and a shining beacon of what is possible in one of Italy’s greatest but often most underachieving appellations
Manferrari came to winemaking by accident. Originally trained as a pharmacist, Manferrari took over the family’s estate upon the unexpected passing of his father in 1981. In 1982, he bottled his own wine for the first time. It was rough going in the early days. Yet the wines that have survived from this period are a poignant reminder that what matters most is the quality of the vineyards.
