Just above Greve in the Chianti region, the Cabreo holdings include 124 acres planted to Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grown to produce Cabreo Il Borgo. Chianti’s famed stony soils are ideal for making wines with great aging potential. At 984 feet in elevation, the densely planted vineyards produce low yields of grapes with concentration and complexity. With 15-20 day maceration and fermentation at controlled temperature, there’s extended maceration to impart rich body, color and texture. After malolactic fermentation, the wines were blended and matured in French oak barrels (30% new, 40% one-year-old, 30% two-year-old) for 16 months, racked every 3 months, and spent at least 6 months in bottle before release.
