Tasting Notes
Technical Details
Attributes

Deep red rather intense, from the nail for a long time young, even in the course of aging in bottle. Very intense and pleasant floral notes with touches of licorice and herbs and hints of wild berries. Full bodied wine, very consistent and at the sametime persistent, concentrating in the glass the best that you can have from Sagiovese grapes that ripen on calcareous clay soils of the estate.

 Sangiovese, Colorino, & Merlot grape blend.

The Estate

The first records of Borgo di Lilliano date back to the Middle Ages. At that time it was a fortified complex comprising the Church of Santa Cristina with a characteristic single large nave (unusual for the parish churches of Chianti). The facade, decorated with a well preserved cornice made of limestone, is highly original.

Wine Making

After careful selection in the vineyard, the grapes undergo soft crushing and destalking. During fermentation, which takes place at 26 to 28 ┬░C, the must is pumped over with plunging of the cap on a daily basis, in order to favour the extraction of the noble compounds from the skins

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with red meats, especially roasted and stewed game.
