BORGO LA STELLA 2015

90 % Sangiovese | 10 % Merlot

Typical of the appellation, the Sangiovese is sublimated in this cuvee and reflects wonderfully the terroir from which it comes. Fine and elegant, the wine reveals itself during the tasting.
Dominated by the fruit at first, the wine develops complex vegetal
and herbaceous aromas after aeration.

BORGO LA STELLA 2014 RISERVA

80 % Sangiovese | 20 % Merlot

The colour is intense ruby. The wine is ample and elegant. The aromas of blackberry, plum, leather, black tea and tobacco make
it a resolutely complex wine. On tasting, the aromatic palette is completed by a mineral character and confrms the complexity of the riserva. The structure and balance of the wine is already pleasant now, but it can also be kept for several years to develop.
