Il Borro Toscana Rosso 2013 Product #32297 (In Stock)
Il Borro Toscana Rosso 2013 Il Borro Toscana Rosso 2013

Ferruccio Ferragamo is better known for running the family's high-fashion business, but he and his son, Salvatore, have spent the past 20 years building Tuscany's best, if still "under the radar," super-Tuscan operation about 60km south east of Florence.  This is their flagship wine, a powerful blend of  50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet, 10% Syrah and 5% Petit Verdot aged 18 months in new French oak.  Already exciting with a decant, this is a powerful super-Tuscan for rich foods and will shine brightest from 2019 - 2030.

"The 2013 Il Borro is a delicious wine that I have tasted several times over the past few months. It presents seamless aromatic integration with luscious dark fruit, proportioned doses of spice, tobacco and sweet blackberry flavors. This wine offers velvety softness and plumpness over a richly extracted mouthfeel and sweet oak tannins. The slightly cooler 2013 vintage reveals very long persistence with pretty nuances of moist earth, rum cake and cherry liqueur. This is a landmark wine from the Il Borro estate in Tuscany."Wine Advocate 95 points

Casaloste Inversus Toscana IGT 2013 Product #31650 (In Stock)
Casaloste Inversus Toscana IGT 2013 Casaloste Inversus Toscana IGT 2013

One of owner/winemaker Giovanni d'Orsi's sons suffers from a rare congenital condition called Situs Inversus, in which major organs are inverted, or lie on the opposite side of the body from normal. Giovanni created this wine to honor his son (his fingerprint is on the label) by "inverting" the wine's blend.  Where his normal Chianti Classico is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, Inversus is 90% rich, dense, rich, Merlot plus 10% vivid, mouthwatering, Sangiovese, all aged 16 months in 30% new French oak.  Pomerol from Bordeaux - think mouthfilling velvet.  Layers of dark plum, black raspberry, and succulent currant fruit are framed by sweet and sophisticated oak spice.  It’s a bit tight today, but the finish is already a thing of beauty, dry and pure with supple and ripe tannins.  Decant it for an hour now if you like, but it will be best from 2018-2028.

"Lots of spicy, intense and focused blackberry, tea leaf and mushroom character here. Full body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. Richer style but characterful. Let it mellow for a year or two. Made from organically grown grapes."  James Suckling 93 points
