Thanks to its south-western exposure and the particular compositional features of the soil, our Le Borranine vineyard offers ideal conditions for quality winegrowing. The resulting wine is wellstructured with a high alcohol content and unusually generous aromas, and is extremely well-suited to ageing for months in barriques. After at least six months’ ageing in bottles, the characteristics of this wine are perfectly enhanced. This is a red table wine from the hills of central Tuscany.
