Tuscany: Il Borro Polissena Sangiovese
Color: Ruby red.
Aroma: Hints of red fruits, underbrush, and even citrus undertones.
Taste: Medium-bodied with medium acidity. Smooth tannins.
Pairing: Grilled meats and aged cheeses.
Il Borro’s vines grow on the Valdarno hills at the foot of the Pratomagno Mountains, within a microclimate of mild winters, a perfect place for vineyards. A great lake covered the entire valley during the Pliocene epoch leaving an enduring legacy in the chemical composition of the soil, ideal for making fine wine. The bedrock is sandstone, above a base of a loam rich soil on a sandy clay matrix. A poor soil but ideal for the needs of the vine.
