2018 Il Borro Borrigiano
2018 Il Borro Borrigiano is the first wine from Il Borro winery in Tuscany, Italy, under the designation “Valdarno di Sopra DOC” and with the Organic certification. It is produced after years of dedication to research, experimentation and enthusiasm in creating quality wines.
The vineyards are planted at a density of 5000 vines per hectare with pruned-spur cordontrained system at 100cm above the ground. Each plant produces up to1 kg of grapes or 4500 kg of grapes per hectare yielding about 3,000 litres of wine.
The production has been accomplished through an alternative system making use of large oak casks of 75hl and 50hl as well as the refrigeration of the grapes followed by a cold maceration lasting two days.
The red blends grapes of Sangiovese, Syrah and Merlot are hand-harvested when technological and phenolic maturity are reached. The refrigeration at 7°C and the cold maceration in large oak barrels allow to maintain the complexity of the aromatic compounds naturally present in grapes.
Subsequently the temperature-controlled fermentation (28°C)takes place and it is followed by an aging of 10 months in large wooden casks.
Borrigiano has a lively ruby color with purplish reflections. The bouquet is intense, with notes of fresh little red fruits mainly reminiscent of cherry and with light spicy scents of ginger and white pepper. The taste is pleasantly fresh, with soft tannins and a lively fruity end leaving a clean harmonious mouth feeling.
A touch of conviviality,a friend with whom to share memorable moments. This is the natural place of Borrigiano. Generous on the palette from the first taste to the last, this is a wine that will amuse.
This is one of the least expensive Valdarno di Sopra wines.The price has been stable over the past year.This wine is difficult to find.
