"The word 'borgo' refers to a small village, Montefioralle, that overlooks the vineyards. Shows aristocratic aromas and flavors of black fruits and earth, a polished, velvety character on the palate and firm tannins. Pairs well with roasted meats, game and aged cheeses." —importer

Blend: 70% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
"The 2010 Il Borgo is pliant and expressive throughout. Hints of lavender, grilled herbs and menthol wrap around a core of blue/black stone fruits. There is a sense of immediacy to the 2010 that is highly appealing. Sweet tobacco and spices add an attractive upper register of aromatics on the finish. Il Borgo is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Drinking window: 2014-2022." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

"A good lashing of oak adds spicy nuances and a layer of tannins to this black cherry-, plum- and coffee-flavored red. Fresh and firm, with the fruit playing against the tannins. Offers a long, tobacco-tinged finish. Best from 2016 through 2022. 5,500 cases made." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
