Monty, Il Borghetto 2021


Tasting Note

The Azienda Agricola Il Borghetto do things differently in this most well-known and prestigious of Italian wine regions. By treating Sangiovese more like Pinot Noir, winemaker Antonio manages to explore new and thrilling nuances of the variety through harnessing all the vivacity of organically and biodynamically cultivated fruit. The wines are then bottled in burgundy-shaped bottles as it’s his firm belief that this aids the wine’s development, as opposed to the region’s more traditional bordeaux-shaped bottle. But such bold divergence from the norm has resulted in the wines being declassified to IGP status. Yet with a plethora of top accolades from the well regarded L’Espresso guide and praise from the likes of Jancis Robinson, their approach has been unequivocally validated.

The wine undergoes a natural fermentation in concrete tank with native yeasts and is racked off the skins very early, followed by 8 months ageing in concrete tank for beautiful integration whilst retaining all the life and freshness of the wine.

A delightful pale garnet red wine with lifted aromas that instantly charm with delicate wild strawberry and tangy cranberry fruit. The palate is complex, the finish is long, and the tannins are fine, supple and effortless. A rare expression of Sangiovese showcasing its versatility.
