Winemaker's Notes:

"Here's a real steal: a clean, direct, modern Chianti Classico that still feels like an Etruscan beauty..."
-Wines & Spirits

Full and intense, with notes of small wild berries and pleasing scents of noble wood, vanilla and cocoa. On the palate, dry, well structured, austere and elegant; good harmony between the tannic and acid components and those responsible for softness (alcohol and glycerine); excellent persistence on the palate.

This is a wine for the whole meal, particularly suitable for serving with pasta and rice, all meat dishes and cheese.

About Borgo Scopeto:

Borgo Scarpeto is an old and well-established estate producer of Chianti Classico and is a true borgo - a hamlet with its own church, post office, town center and residences. Elizabetta Gnudi owns Borgo Scopeto, and she and winemaker Simone Giunti are responsible for all aspects of the production of Borgo Scopeto wines.

The Chianti Classico of Borgo Scopeto comes from Castelnuovo Berardenga, which is the southern-most commune within the Chianti Classico zone. All vineyards at Borgo Scopeto are dry farmed from the day the vines are first planted.
