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?

The Ferragamo family owns the beautiful Il Borro property and has converted the vineyards over to certified organic farming. 

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "This is the estate's flagship wine and is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Petit Verdot once played a small supporting role in the blend, but that grape has since been removed because it left too strong a signature. The 2016 Il Borro is a seamless, full-bodied red wine that presents an A-list aromatic presentation with dark fruit and plum followed by savory spice, leather and tobacco. The quality of the fruit is sweet and bright, but there is also a distinct mineral note to the wine that contrasts the sweetness with saltiness. The tannins are well integrated and there is enough acidity to lift the entire flavor profile of this beautiful wine.  Drink date:  2019 - 2038."  Aug 2019

James Suckling:  "A layered and intense red with berry, green-olive, chocolate and cedar aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, yet linear and focused with lovely lines of ripe and firm tannins, running through the center palate. Bright acidity. From organically grown grapes and organic winemaking. Drink now, but better after 2020."  Nov 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."
