Winemaker's Notes:

The color is deep ruby red, with light burgundy reflections. On the nose, the bouquet is full and intense, with notes of small wild berries and pleasing scents of noble wood, vanilla and cocoa, while on the palate, dry, well structured, austere and elegant; with good harmony between the tannic and acid components and those responsible for softness (alcohol and glycerine) and excellent persistence.

About Borgio 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.
