    Toscana 2013 by Il Borro is an Italian red wine produced in Tuscany. It is a blend of 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine is matured for 18 months in barrels before being filtered and bottled. The wines remain in cellars for 8 months before being sold on the market.

    Toscana 2013 by Il Borro presents an intense ruby colour with purple reflections. On the nose, the bouquet is full, intense and concentrated. Notes of undergrowth mixed with spice aromas develop. On the palate, the wine is dry, with a beautiful structure. 2013 Toscana reveals soft tannins that have perfectly integrated.

    This comment describes the general profile of the wine, which will evolve over time.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2013 Il Borro is a delicious wine that I have tasted several times over the past few months. It presents seamless aromatic integration with luscious dark fruit, proportioned doses of spice, tobacco and sweet blackberry flavors. This wine offers velvety softness and plumpness over a richly extracted mouthfeel and sweet oak tannins. The slightly cooler 2013 vintage reveals very long persistence with pretty nuances of moist earth, rum cake and cherry liqueur. This is a landmark wine from the Il Borro estate in Tuscany.
