97pts James Suckling 96pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

From the heart of Tuscany, this Il Borro Toscana brings delicious warmth, gobs of dark, ripe fruit, lovely earthiness and spectacular balance. What more could you ask for?

James Suckling:  "This is the best Il Borro to date with fantastic blackberry, blueberry and sandalwood aromas that follow through to a full body with masses of fruit. Yet, it remains bright and linear down the center palate. A rich and toned wine. 50 per cent merlot, 35 per cent cabernet and 15 per cent syrah. From organically grown grapes. Needs four or five years to come around. Best in 2022." Dec 2018

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "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. Drink 2019-2035." May 2019

Winery: "Il Borro has an intense ruby color, with purplish reflections. The bouquet is full and intense, concentrated, with notes of underbrush and with spicy scents. The taste is dry, with a good body and soft tannins, good consistency, well integrated and persistent.

Ideal with all the Tuscan meat dishes, Tuscan croutons, aged cheeses, cured meats, first and main courses with game (wild boar, Chianina meat and cinta senese meat/salami). Il Borro wine also pairs perfectly with Asiatic dishes and with US hamburgers."

**Fun Fact**: "The Ferragamo family owns the beautiful Il Borro property and has converted the vineyards over to certified organic farming. They have also added a few relatively new products to their portfolio including Sangiovese-based Rosato and an amphorae-aged red."
