This is a very pretty, with currant, cherry and some mahogany and cigar-box character. It’s medium-to full-bodied with tight, linear tannins that are long and very intense. Polished nicely.

From the estates of Ambrogio & Giovanni Folonari (with properties across Tuscany), the Tenute del Cabreo 2017 Il Borgo is a blend of mostly Sangiovese with a smaller part Cabernet Sauvignon. This is an oak-heavy wine with a robust texture that is woven tight with blackberry, spice, leather and tarry smoke. There is some sweet spice and cinnamon on the close, and the wine offers textured, open-knit tannins.

Rich and polished, this shows a light hand with new oak. Black cherry, plum, blackberry, iron, vanilla, coffee and tobacco flavors mingle, supported by lively acidity and dense, refined tannins. Balanced and long.

Its modern suppleness is created from the extraordinary ripeness and balance of 2016 Tuscan vintage. It delivers black-fruit and cedar fragrances, and black-cherry flavor—all carried on a medium body with a soft, round texture that cries “Bordeaux-esque.”

Dried berries, cherries, chocolate and walnuts. It’s medium to full-bodied with lightly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Juicy consistency.
