Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)
Borgoforte ("strong village" in Italian) is a small village in the middle of Villa Pillo Estate that proved too strong to conquer. A blend of , this wine is made in the Super Tuscan style by adding Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes to Sangiovese, then aged in small oak barrels. Each year Villa Pillo select special 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.
The color is a deep crimson red, and the delicious nose offers up aromas of vanilla, ripe dark fruit and ripe cherry.
The palate is rich, layered with wild berries, fresh bing cherries, and rich hearty tannins. Smooth and silky, we recommend this wine with pasta, red meats, and game of any kind.
