Wine Review: This dark red colored Merlot based wine from Toscana opens with a barnyard and dark cherry like bouquet with hints of cedar and walnut. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well-balanced, velvety and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild black cherry and blueberry blend with notes of oak and gentle chalky minerality. We also detected hints of black tea and herbs. The finish is dry and moderate dusty tannins show great length. The Panel suggested pairing it with a New York strip steak. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: "Il Borro" has an intense ruby color, with purplish reflections. The bouquet is full and intense with notes of underbrush and with spicy scents. The taste is dry, with a good body and soft tannins, a good consistency, well integrated and persistent. Ideal with all Tuscan dishes cooked with meat, aged cheeses, cured meats.
