Borgo Scopeto Borgonero IGT 2015

27.00

Tuscany, Italy

40% Sangiovese, 20% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot

Rustic red fruits on the nose with hints of violets and iron. The palate is medium bodied with cherry, raspberry, minerals and a hint of smoke. The balance of integrated tannins and food-friendly acidity make this an approachable and versatile wine.

A Supertuscan of great personality and elegance. The grapes are selected in the Cagliano and Vittoria vineyards, whose soil characteristics, exposures, and microclimates are ideally suited to the varietals that make up the wine. The vineyards range from 400 to 450 meters in altitude, and the harvest takes place between mid-September and the first week of October, following a careful evaluation of the degree of ripeness of the grapes. The harvest is manual in the Cagliano vineyards, and mechanized, using machines that eliminate the green parts in the Vittoria vineyards. Aging occurred in 500 liter French oak tonneaux for 16 months. The primary and malolactic fermentations of the different varietals take place separately, and only later are they assembled into a single wine.
