Marks and reviews
After discovering the idyllic scenery of the medieval village of Il Borro, not far from Florence, during a hunting trip, Ferruccio Ferragamo acquired the Il Borro estate in 1993, with the ambition of producing excellent wines from an 85-hectare vineyard that would be recognised as some of the finest Tuscan wines.
This 2019 Pian di Nova by Il Borro is a Tuscan wine that stems from vineyards located at an altitude of 200 metres and resting on predominantly silty and sandy soils.
A relatively dry winter preceded a cool, wet spring. June was very hot, followed by a summer punctuated by stormy spells. Despite these unstable weather conditions, the grapes harvested were showcased a high quality.
Vinification and ageing
Harvested, destemmed and sorted by hand, the grapes are then cooled overnight before pressing and vatting by gravity flow. Vinification by grape variety. Pre-fermentation maceration for 2 days before alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks for around 10 days. Post-fermentation maceration for 20 days. Racking and ageing in vats for 6 months before the wines are racked into barrels for 12 months. The batches are then decanted into steel vats, blended and filtered. The bottled wine is left to rest for 6 months before being released on the market.
This wine showcases a beautiful ruby red colour.
The nose blends floral fragrances with delicious fruity (black and red fruits) and spicy notes.
Unctuous, the palate is seduced by this wine’s freshness, its balance and its fine tannins. The finish is persistent and reveals spicy and fruity notes.
Food and wine pairing
This IGT Toscana wine will complement traditional Tuscan dishes beautifully, but also spicy or oriental dishes.
