2017 Borgo Scopeto Borgonero
2017 Borgo Scopeto Borgonero; Tuscany, Italy
Winemaker Notes: Charged ruby. The nose is ethereal and ample, refined and enticing, with noble aromas. The palate is full bodied with extraordinary structure, terrific harmony, and surprising softness.
Toscana IGT is the most popular and famous of Italy‘s Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) titles. It encapsulates the entire region, with the Toscana IGT label permitted on wine produced in any of Tuscany‘s ten provinces. Free from the stylistic constraints imposed on DOCG and DOC wines, Toscana IGT wines can be made in almost every form imaginable, from bone-dry whites to sweet reds and sparkling rosés.
Borgo Scopeto is an old and well-established estate producer of Chianti Classico. It is a true borgo – a hamlet with its own church, post office, town center, and residences. Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini owns Borgo Scopeto, along with Altesino, Caparzo, and Doga delle Clavule, and she and winemaker Massimo Bracalente are responsible for all aspects of the production of Borgo Scopeto wines. The first bottle of Chianti Classico with the Borgo Scopeto label dates back to 1990.
