      Miele “Millefiori” - Blütenhonig (BIO)

      Il Borro | Tuscany

      This honey is truly unique, valuable and very rare (and of course BIO certified). Millefiori represents the components of the landscape in its purest form of craftsmanship. Amber. Medium fruity fragrance. In the taste beguilingly sweet, but also wild, smelling of lovage, with hints of liquorice and oriental spices. A real rarity with addiction potential and in BIO quality.

    • "Borrigiano" Rosso Valdarno di Sopra DOC 2018 (BIO)

      “Borrigiano” Rosso Valdarno di Sopra DOC 2018 (BIO)

      Borrigiano is an enchanting cuvée that brings an ideal balance of fine and balanced wood use and fresh, lively fruit into the glass. In the nose an interesting berry aroma and some plum jam. For us, Borrigiano is an ideal companion for convivial evenings and mild pasta dishes or risottos - he shows in a charming (and affordable) way the great potential of the up-and-coming winery. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is the first wine from Il Borro to be made under the Valdarno di Sopra appellation designation (the first vintage made was 2015), and the wine's name Borrigiano means "inhabitants of the Il Borro hamlet." The 2018 Valdarno di Sopra Borrigiano is a blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Syrah that sees a brief period of cold maceration followed by ten months of aging in large oak casks. The aim here is to keep the freshness of the fruit intact, and this goal has been readily achieved. The bouquet opens to forest berry aromas with raw plum and fresh prune. This is a terrific wine with a confident, pure and easy-drinking appeal that is nothing short of charming." Robert Parker

      “Pian di Nova” Rosso Toscana IGT 2017 (BIO)

      Medium ruby red. In the bouquet a violet note with delicate hints of vanilla. On the palate it is powerful, fresh and very precise with a dominant fruit and lots of energy. In the medium-long finish then a fine spice. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Il Borro's 2017 Pian di Nova is a well-balanced wine with the softness and savory character of the French grape framed by the racy acidity of the Tuscan variety. This was a hot and dry vintage; however, the integrity of the fruit remains intact. Perhaps you get a little extra softness and rich concentration on the finish with black cherry, blackberry and soft spice." Robert Parker

      "This is really rich and beautiful with so much fruit and soft tannins. It’s full-bodied with round, ripe tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Dried-cherry and black-pepper notes. From organically grown grapes. 75% syrah and 25% sangiovese. Why wait?" James Suckling

    • "Polissena" Sangiovese Valdarno di Sopra DOC 2017 (BIO)

      “Polissena” Sangiovese Valdarno di Sopra DOC 2017 (BIO)

      Polissena shows the typical handwriting of Il Borro: The wines are vinified as typical for the grape variety as possible and therefore come - especially recognizable here with Sangiovese - as authentic as possible into the glass. In the nose fine cherry aroma with hints of wild berries, forest floor and some plum. In the drink then the typical acidity paired with a delicate fruit, a firm core and a taut final. The 12-month aging in used and almost neutral barriques suits the freshness and straightness of the Polissena very well. Great drinking pleasure! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Wild herbs, crushed cherry, blackberry, cedar spice box, hints of damp earth and leather tones create a classic display on the 2017 Valdarno di Sopra Petruna Vigna Polissena. On the palate, silky textures are contrasted by tart red fruits with crunchy minerality, creating a cascading effect, as masses of inner violet florals form. The finish is long, full of youthful tension but also energetic, as fine tannins coat the senses, offset by a solid core of primary fruit, promising years of development." Vinous

      "This wine now boasts an appellation identity (previous editions were labeled as IGT Toscana). The newly minted Il Borro 2017 Valdarno di Sopra Sangiovese Vigna Polissena opens to a pretty ruby color and imparts bright berry aromas with tart raspberry and wild cherry. You might also detect a very Mediterranean note of rosemary or lavender essence, and there are faint mineral notes on the close. This is a great choice for your favorite pastas topped with a meat and tomato sauce." Robert Parker

      "A really refined sangiovese with cherries, strawberries and some citrus undertones. Hints of walnuts, too. Full-bodied with round, creamy tannins that are so beautiful and soft. The texture is exceptional. From organically grown grapes from a beautiful single vineyard. Better in 2022, but already a beauty." James Suckling

    • "Petruna Anfora" Sangiovese Toscana IGT 2017 (BIO)

      “Petruna Anfora” Sangiovese Toscana IGT 2017 (BIO)

      Just like the equally famous neighbour Fattoria Petrolo (with his Boggina A), Il Borro can also convince us with a red wine aged in amphorae. Petruna is a pure Sangiovese, fermented in hermetically sealed amphorae with skin contact for 12 months. The result is surprising, not in the sense of an "interesting" experimental wine, but because the typical character of Sangiovese is fully expressed in freshness, fruit and energy. The bouquet is dominated by cherry and small red berries, along with some orange zest. His body is of medium weight, which makes him an excellent eating companion. Its fresh acidity and an array of fine tannins increase the drinking pleasure enormously. Experiment succeeded in an elegant way, we can say. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, bright ruby. Very fragrant, open nose, floral, after violets, pomegranate, blood oranges, rhubarb, delicate white pepper. On the palate with lots of fruit and plenty of juice, fine texture, lively on the tongue, medium to slender body, well balanced, enjoys enormous flow, powerful tannin in the aftertaste." Falstaff

      "Bright and fresh with cherries, watermelon and orange peel. Light body. Fine tannins and crisp acidity. A pure, single vineyard sangiovese made in amphora." James Suckling

      "My reaction to this wine is overwhelmingly positive. This is a pure expression of organic Sangiovese that is farmed with extreme care, down to one kilogram of fruit per plant. The grapes are fermented in clay amphorae with daily punch-downs. The clay vessels are then sealed with steel lids, and the wine is left in contact with the skins for 12 months. The results are offbeat and provocative for sure, but the wine pleases the senses thanks to its grape-skin purity and firm mid-weight texture. The freshness and energy of the fruit comes through loud and clear, and you don't feel the heat of the vintage whatsoever. I give it my thumbs up." Robert Parker

A touch of leather, liquorice and cloves round off the silky, medium-bodied and very harmonious finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      Spumante of the extra class! Bolle di Borro - Sangiovese interpreted in a completely new way. Il Borro has been producing a pure Sangiovese sparkling wine in the champagne method (Metodo Classico) for a few years now. Fragrant yeasty nose, fine after small red berries and candied citrus peel. On the palate then bread, brioche, finely chiselled Sangiovese fruit and a wonderfully creamy yet precise, crisp, very long finish. Elegance and finesse in puezza! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lightening salmon pink. In the nose after roasted nuts, salt, very tenderly after raspberries, something dark bread crust, of middle intensity. At the palate with finely integrated perlage, juicy, also salty, stretches elegantly over the tongue, harmonious mouthfeel, absolutely enjoy from a big glass."

      "This is really fresh and bright with white peaches and cherries. Medium-bodied with fine bubbles. Delicious and so drinkable." James Suckling

      "Il Borro's festive 2014 Bolle di Borro Metodo Classico Rosé Brut (made with Sangiovese) shows a light pink color with amber and copper highlights. The wine is tart and fresh, yet it shows a generous, mid-weight mouthfeel that lasts long on the palate. Aromas of white cherry and cassis are followed by toasted almond and freshly baked Tuscan bread. This vintage is lithe and delicate, offering just the right dose of elegance to counter the more robust and sophisticated approach to the palate." Robert Parker

      “Alessandro del Borro” Syrah Toscana IGT 2012 · MAGNUM in OWC

      We have known since Galatrona and Torrione (Fattoria Petrolo) at the latest that the still relatively unknown Valdarno region near Arezzo produces great wines. But one immediately thinks of Sangiovese, at best Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. From a small vineyard, however, the Ferragamos only vinify a pure Syrah in the really good years, which is then consistently only available in the Magnum bottle in the hand-picked specialist trade or the top gastronomy.

      Expressive bouquet of blackberries, pepper and chocolaty notes. It is fleshy, juicy and impresses with a very present fruit. Full and round, well textured and flanked by wonderfully defined tannins, Alessandro dal Borro leads into a great finish. High expectable maturity potential, not only because of the 1.5l large format. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2012 Alessandro dal Borro (1.5-liter) is a pure expression of the mighty Rhône grape from the Arezzo area of Eastern Tuscany. This wine is only bottled in magnums. This is a very precise and linear expression that shows characteristic traits of blackberry, chocolate, cured meat and cracked peppercorn. This wine happily offers a greater level of complexity and textural depth compared to 2011. It showcases this power and potential of the Valdarno territory." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersIl BorroTuscany | Chianti
    Il Borro

    An organic vineyard. A Relais & Chateaux luxury resort. A horse stud. Chianina cattle. Vegetable specialities. Zero-emissions project. An entire medieval village restored. All that is true.

    It all began when Ferruccio Ferragamo, president of the billion-dollar fashion clan, fell in love with a medieval village, first rented it and finally bought it. That was in 1993 and the starting signal for a showcase project of superlatives.

    One hour southeast of Florence, near Arezzo. A village around a fortification from the Middle Ages. Eventful history with famous noble families. Once the Medici went hunting here, later it belonged to the Hohenlohes, the House of Savoy and finally to the Duke of Aosta. In 1997 Ferruccio Ferragamo acquired it and entrusted its management to his son Salvatore, who retired from the fashion empire and "followed his desire to start from scratch, to be a pioneer and not stay in the finished nest".

    Organic farming and viticulture, original restored medieval ambience, fine olive oil and wellness spa. The attraction of progress: Salvatore wants to create a zero-emission world with complete energetic self-sufficiency. What has been created and restored here in the last twenty years could fill a book. But let's stick to wine. Because this chapter is also exciting.

    The original wine cellar is probably one of the oldest preserved in Tuscany. Magnificently renovated and equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the electricity comes from its own photovoltaic hill. 2004 was completed with a newly built part.

    Old vineyards were carefully restructured and from the mid-1990s soils were analysed and new vineyards planned and planted. The rootstock vines, clones and grape varieties as well as the orientation were selected analytically for the respective sites. Nothing was left to chance. In addition to autochthonous grape varieties such as Sangiovese, the classic varieties Merlot, Cabernet and a little Petit Verdot were also cultivated. In 2003, "Il Borro", the first wine, came onto the market. In the following year the "Pian di Nova", which should be understood as a second wine, as in the Bordeaux system. The conversion to organic farming began in 2007 avoiding chemicals and adding horn manure and was completed in 2012. In 2015 Il Borro received the organic certification.

    The vineyards are located in the hills of Valdarno, at the foot of the Pratomagno mountains, in the basin of a former lake. A mixture of sand, loam and clay, rather barren but with good drainage, offers the vines a good condition to root deeply. The climate is relatively mild, even in winter, the nearby mountains provide good ventilation. In the meantime 85 hectares are in the yield, on 300 to 500 m above sea level. The grapes are harvested by hand, destemmed and macerated in steel vats, and aged for a relatively long time in French wooden barrels. The aim, of course, is to maximise the terroir and the fruit. Recently, the first wines aged in terracotta amphoras have been introduced to the market.

    Almost needless to say, Il Borro is a luxurious place to stay and dine. The vineyards can be explored on horseback. Or get married right here. If the Ferragamos do anything, it's perfect. This also applies to the wines, which in recent years have found their way into all guides around the world with high scores. It is good that this will then be achieved along with some biodynamic practices, conservation of resources and energy self-sufficiency. SUPERIORE.DE
