Food PairingPasta

This Villa Pillo Borgoforte Super Tuscan is yet another fine example of the bounty which is produced by the Chianti region of Tuscany. It's floral, fruity and earthy, with delicate tannins and a stellar personality. We're thinking bruschetta of tomatoes, garlic and roasted red peppers to go with your first bottle. (We're not talking glasses here, because at this price, it should be bottles.) Grilled portabellas stuffed with lots of herbs and a little goat cheese to hold them together is another hors d'ouevres or appetizer course which will delight. There are so many delicious options for entrees, we're struggling to decide. Try the Borgoforte with a traditional Cioppino, a hearty fish stew made with fennel. Veal Parmesan is another delicious companion for this Villa Pillo. A big cheesy lasagna is our go-to comfort food for this Super-Tuscan. And finally, if you're craving something from the grill to highlight the lovely tannins, make it a T-Bone steak done to your likeness, with some cannelini beans cooked with sage and garlic to make your day. Che cosa stai aspettando, winelovers??

Winery: "Borgoforte is a small village in the middle of our estate that proved too strong to conquer: A strong village. Like our new red wines, it symbolizes the resilient and charming character of the Tuscans. This wine is made in the “Super–Tuscan” style by adding Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes to the classical grape of Tuscany, Sangiovese.

Each year we add selected wines to the blend to bring subtle complexity and richness without losing the flavor of the traditional wines of Tuscany. Grapes picked at optimum ripeness ensure a wine which expresses itself in its ripe blackfruit components and full body. A true reflection of flavours which are a marriage of our soils under the Tuscan sun. For smooth body and elegance, the wine is aged in small oak barrels. We enthusiastically recommend this wine with pasta, red meats and game of any kinds."
