Il Borro Toscana 2016
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, a good consistency, well integrated and persistent.
A blend of 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Syrah

|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.|

|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|
