James SucklingA balanced and fruity red with reserve and finesse. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Better in 2018 but already delicious. A beautiful blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine AdvocateThis is one of two estates owned by Ambrogio and Giovanni Folonari. The second is Tenuta di Nozzole. The 2013 Il Borgo opens to a rich, dark garnet appearance with austere fruit flavors. Following a few vigorous swirls of the glass, the wine opens up to soft cherry and blackberry aromas with mellow textural richness. Il Borgo represents a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Some 50,000 bottles are produced.
