Borgoforte is a small village in the middle of our Estate that proved too strong to conquer: A strong village. 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 blackfruit 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.We enthusiastically recommend this wine with pasta, red meats and game of any kinds.
