    Winemaker's Notes:

    A Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon super-Tuscan blend, this wine shows rich, dense aromas of wild cherry and black currant offset by notes of leather, herbs and vanilla. On the palate, it is velvety and complex, with ripe tannins repeated on the elegant finish.

    Critical Acclaim:


    #96 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

    This is dark and rich, with loads of blackberry and currant aromas. Full-bodied and very ripe, with soft, velvety tannins. Rich and luscious. Goes on and on. One of the best Cabreos in a long time. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2011. 3,500 cases made.

    Cabreo's 2006 Il Borgo (70% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon) offers gorgeous purity in its bright red fruit, flowers and spices. The wine reveals outstanding depth and length in a mid-weight style, with a refined, poised finish and lovely overall balance. Another year or so in bottle should help smooth the tannins, but in this vintage the French oak (30% new) seems much better integrated than it has been in the past. This is a commendable effort from the Folonari family. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021.
