Overview

IGT Toscana

The vines have a 4,500 plants per hectare and are found at an average height of 300m above sea level. With the pre-harvesting at the end of August, each plant produced a maximum of 1kg of grapes, therefore 4500kg of grapes per hectare, with a result of 30 hl per hectare. The grapes are collected by hand, the stalks taken off, crushed and sent into the wine-making vats.

Each variety is made separately.

On the first day of fermentation the wine undergoes a light draining of 10-20%, so as to collect half a litre of wine from each kg of grape, to higher the level of concentration.

The maceration of the skins comes after 22 days at a controlled temperature of 28° in steel vats.The alcoholic fermentation lasts on average 10 days. Immediately after this the wine is put in new Alliers oak barrels; at the first stage before bottling, which comes after the malolactic fermentation, around November, the four varieties are assembled. The maturation in the barrels lasts 18 months; after which it is filtered and bottled.

Il Borro remains in the cellar for another 8 months for a last refining before being put on the market.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Located in the Valdarno region at the foothills of the Pratomagno mountains, the estate enjoys a highly privileged position with optimal viticultural conditions. The soil was modelled by the movements of the great lakes which covered the entire area during the Pliocene era millions of years ago. These origins have strongly influenced both the composition and the shape of the area, geographically and topographically. All of these aspects played an important role when in 1993 the oenologist Nicolò D'Afflitto, after extensive soil analysis, uprooted the old vineyards and selected vines best suited to the soil's characteristics.
