Brand Il Borro
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
Il Borro has a deep violet colour, with purplish reflections. The bouquet is full and intense, concentrated, with notes of underbrush and with spicy scents. The taste is dry, with good body and soft tannins, a good consistency, well integrated and persistent. Ideal with all the Tuscan dishes cooked with meat, Tuscan croutons, aged cheeses, cured meats, first and main courses with game (wild boar, Chianina meat, and cinta sense meat/salami). Il Borro wine also pairs perfectly with some asiatic dishes and with US hamburger.

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.

This robust Tuscan blend of 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Syrah is Il Borro's flagship wine. The 2015 Il Borro is an important and thickly enriched expression that shows ample power and muscle but remains elegantly modulated and contoured at the same time. The bouquet opens to dark fruit, blackberry, prune, spice, leather and tar. In the mouth, this wine is richly textured, velvety and concentrated, and it delivers balanced tannins and acidity. Il Borro has beautifully captured the warmth and exuberance of the terrific 2015 vintage.

The black currant, black cherry and herbal aromas and flavors are well-balanced, unfolding to reveal cedar, iron, sanguine and tobacco notes that add depth and expression. Fine length. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2021 through 2030. 5,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
