The 2017 Cabreo Il Borgo is characterized by complex and charming aromas. The palate holds a tremenodous structure, it stands out for its fresh and crispy fruit taste. A silky finish with a great persistence.
Pair this wine perfectly alongside any charcuterie board.
Wine Spectator 94 - Rich and polished, this shows a light hand with new oak. Black cherry, plum, blackberry, iron, vanilla, coffee and tobacco flavors mingle, supported by lively acidity and dense, refined tannins. Balanced and long. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2022 through 2036.
Wine Advocate 91 - From the estates of Ambrogio & Giovanni Folonari (with properties across Tuscany), the Tenute del Cabreo 2017 Il Borgo is a blend of mostly Sangiovese with a smaller part Cabernet Sauvignon. This is an oak-heavy wine with a robust texture that is woven tight with blackberry, spice, leather and tarry smoke. There is some sweet spice and cinnamon on the close, and the wine offers textured, open-knit tannins. You might try this with some barbecued ribs.
