Villa Pillo Toscana Borgoforte 2020

Size: 750ml

James Suckling: 90

"Borgoforte is a small village in the middle of our Estate that proved too strong to conquer. Like our new red wines, it symbolizes the resilient and charming character of the Tuscans. This wine is made in the “Super – Tuscan” style by adding Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes to the classical grape of Tuscany, Sangiovese. Each year we add selected wines to the blend to bring subtle complexity and richness without losing the flavor of the traditional wines of Tuscany. Grapes picked at optimum ripeness ensure a wine which expresses itself in its ripe black fruit components and full body. A true reflection of flavours which are a marriage of our soils under the Tuscan sun. For smooth body and elegance, the wine is aged in small oak barrels." —winemaker

"A medium-bodied blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon and merlot that shows the crunch of red plums, baked cherries and roasted herbs. Turns quite direct and juicy on the palate with a cherry-driven finish. Drink now." —James Suckling

"At the time of release, this showed a deep purple red with crisp raspberry aromas. On the palate, similar aromas came through followed by layers of spiciness, a firm but velvety mouthfeel and a long clean finish. One of those not so frequent examples of a Crianza that will improve for the next 5 to 7 years" —winemaker

"This is the basic wine of the Fattoria, yet our research of the highest quality applied to all our vineyards, not only the most suited ones. This Chianti lines up its quality level to the Riserva and single vineyard wines. It is made from 95% Sangiovese and 5% Colorino. The fermentation takes place with maceration on the skins for about 20 days, followed by 8 months of barrel aging in French oak.The wine has a deep ruby red color and intense bouquet of black cherry and violet aromas and flavors. It is full and round on the palate with excellent tannic structure and a round harmonious finish." —importer

"In the Dogliani area this traditional wine reaches its maximal tipicity: of a ruby red color, which tends toward violet with a rich fruity bouquet, full bodied with an intense aroma of undergrowth and a pleasantly tannic taste, with a slight final almond note, typical of this wine. Eight months of maturation in steel tanks and two months in glass complete the refinement. Of a dry and moderately acidic taste, after a year of ageing, it has a good body and full taste." —winemaker
