Winemaker Notes

Polissena has a deep ruby-red color. It has an intense bouquet, with notes of underbrush and hints of red fruit. It is dry, with a good body and a pleasant hint of tannins. The balance and elegance of Polissena fully comply with the Tuscan tradition.

Pairs well with all the Tuscan dishes cooked with meat, Tuscan croutons, aged cheeses, cured meats, first and main courses with games. Polissena wine pairs perfectly with hare, and wild boar.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Sangiovese grapes for this wine originate from the same vineyard that makes the amphorae-aged Petruna. However, the 2016 Polissena is a more conventional expression of the Tuscan grape, with fermentation in stainless steel and 12 months of barrel age in second and third year barrique. The wine is delicate yet firm, aromatic yet elegant. The bouquet offers wild berry aromas with black fruit, spice, tar and moist potting soil. There is a distinct unifying line that connects all the wines made at Il Borro, especially the Sangiovese-based bottles.


JS 93
James Suckling

A tight and lightly chewy red with cherry and plum aromas and flavors and hints of lemon peel. Medium body. Firm and chewy. Better after 2020.

Il Borro, Italy
Il Borro  Winery Image

The Il Borro estate extends to 1,730 acres below the Pratomagno hills on terrain with good structure and sandy composition. Today, the Ferragamo family, with the help of Enologist Niccolo’ D’Afflitto have been working to develop the agricultural practices that have been used at Il Borro since 1760 under the ownership of Medici-Tornaquinci. In addition to wine the estate also produces olive oil and other agricultural products. The agri-turistic activity receives guests both in the medieval site, with over 1,000 years of history, and also in “old” canonic houses perfectly restored and located inside the estate.

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.
