Il Borro Pian di Nova 2015
Very perfumed and bright with flowers, light cloves, pepper, licorice and cherries. Full-bodied, with very fine tannins and a juicy, dark-fruit finish that adds hints of black pepper and sweet tobacco. Beautiful wine. First year from organically grown grapes. A blend of syrah and sangiovese.
The 2015 Pian di Nova is 75% Syrah and 25% Sangiovese, aged in neutral, two- to three-year-old barriques for 12 months. This vintage has a lovely fullness and density to it that adds to the wine's immediate appeal. Much of that extra concentration is characteristic of the hot 2015 vintage, although at its heart, this remains a relatively simple and easy-drinking red wine from sunny Tuscany.
