Average Critic Score
90.7
A balanced and fruity red with reserve and finesse. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Better in 2018 but already delicious. A beautiful blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon.
James Suckling
This is one of two estates owned by Ambrogio and Giovanni Folonari. The second is Tenuta di Nozzole. The 2013 Il Borgo opens to a rich, dark garnet appearance with austere fruit flavors. Following a few vigorous swirls of the glass, the wine opens up to soft cherry and blackberry aromas with mellow textural richness. Il Borgo represents a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Some 50,000 bottles are produced.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
A rich red, with cherry and plum notes shaded by vanilla, chocolate and a hint of earth flavors. The tannins are on the dry side, but this would be fine with grilled steak or lamb. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2017 through 2023. 3,000 cases made.

Grapes

Sangiovese is Italy’s most planted grape (under its many clonal guises) and Tuscany’s most famous as it is the backbone to many of their greatest appellations including Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and many Super Tuscans. It is thought to be of ancient origin (its name means “Blood of Jove”) and is thought to be part Tuscan, part southern Italian. Stylisically, it can range from bright ruby red to deep red, brown and tends to offer notes of sour cherries, plums and spicy leather notes paired with bright acidity and firm tannins. It produces a more rustic wine in Corsica under its clone, Nielluccio. While small quantities are produced in areas of the New World, they tend to not hit the heights of those in Italy. ...
One of the world’s most revered grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon competes with Merlot as the two most planted red varieties. Known for its noble persona, its deep colour, full-bodied structure and telltale notes of pencil lead and blackcurrant, it can be found as the main grape in Bordeaux’s main Médoc blends, but is also highly regarded in Italian Super Tuscan blends and as a 100% varietal wine in the New World’s finest areas, such as California’s Napa Valley and Australia’s McLaren Vale. ...

Tuscany

Tuscany is arguably the most famous of all Italian wine regions for not only does one have the renowned vineyards of Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino where Sangiovese reigns in all its forms, but it is also the land of the Super Tuscan, the cult wine style that laid the foundation of some of the greatest wines of the country. Some of the greatest bottles include Sassicaia, Tignanello, Ornellaia and Masseto. In addition to being the most famous, it is also one of the most spread out with vineyards as far north as Florence and as far southeast as the Umbrian border and as far southwest as Bolgheri and the Maremma on the Mediterranean sea. Though it is most famous for its reds, it also produces delicious whites including Vernaccia from San Gimignano and Vermentino from its vineyards closer to the sea. ...
