Winemaker Notes

Just above Greve in the Chianti region, the Cabreo holdings include 124 acres planted to Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grown to produce Cabreo Il Borgo. Chianti’s famed stony soils are ideal for making wines with great aging potential. At 984 feet in elevation, the densely planted vineyards produce low yields of grapes with concentration and complexity. With 15-20 day maceration and fermentation at controlled temperature, there's extended maceration to impart rich body, color and texture. After malolactic fermentation, the wines were blended and matured in French oak barrels (30% new, 40% one-year-old, 30% two-year-old) for 16 months, racked every 3 months, and spent at least 6 months in bottle before release.

Great structure and very elegant with a superb finesse. The aromas are complex with distinctive flavors of fresh black fruits, leather and forest floor with silky tannins and a very long finish.

Pairs well with roast beef and aged hard cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
Shows ripe fruit with orange peel and other citrus undertones. Medium to full body, polished and chewy tannins. Fresh finish. Drink in 2019 but already delicious.
WS 92
Wine Spectator

This red follows a savory, earthy and minerally line, offering leather, wild scrub, iron and tobacco flavors. Focused and muscular, with a saline persistence.

TP 90
Tasting Panel

Refined and juicy with tangy berry fruit and spice; earthy and long from the Folonari family, who produce two Super Tuscan wines from two properties in Chianti Classico.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon opens with subtle aromas of dark berry, cedar and baking spice. The structured palate offers dried black cherry, star anise and clove alongside polished tannins.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
