Il Borghetto Toscana 'Monte de Sassi' 2013

Il Borghetto comprises five organically farmed hectares of vines in the heart of the Chianti appellation, forgoing DOCG status to create wines to his own unique preferences. Some whole cluster fermentation is implemented, an unusual practice for Italians, adding structure and aromatic complexity to the wines. The 2013 ‘Monte de Sassi’ is dry and red-fruited, noted with herbs, wild flowers, and minerals. Plush & juicy-- a steal for the price.

Wine Type







Italy’s most-planted red and one of its noblest: a Tuscan icon (Chianti Classico; Brunello) that wanders through many regions. Crisp cherry-scented with a woodsy savor; Italy’s answer to Pinot Noir.
