Winemaker Notes

The name comes from a creek (Borro) that flows in the woods beneath the vineyard where we select the sangiovese of this wine, the rest of the grapes are selected from a 50 years old vineyard right above, which stretches on a plateau.  In 2016, the temperatures raised progressively from April to July, while from August to October the weather was cooler with significant differences
between day and night temperature, favoring the ripeness of the fruit and developing aromas and flavors.
