Made with 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, 5% Petit Verdot the 2013 Il Borro is a darkly saturated and hearty red wine. It opens to beautiful aromas of black fruit with licorice, campfire ash and sweet spice that all find impressive balance. Mineral notes of flint and lead pencil are also part of the aroma. The bouquet delivers a lasting impact but the mouthfeel is delicate in nature.
