Product Description

Il Tasso is the Badger, the mascot and symbol of Fabio Coser’s Ronco dei Tassi. Fabio selected the badger to
represent his fledgling winery 25 years ago to remind himself, his famiy and his customers that before people had
touched his land a rich ecosystem existed, balanced and tuned to the rhythms of the natural world. We asked Fabio to
bottle two wines that would represent both great value and regional typicity. He suggested Pinot Grigio and Merlot,
varieties that have been grown in Friuli for over a century.
