Borgo Scopeto is a well-established estate in the Classico zone of Chianti which is owned by the quality-driven Elizabetta Gnudi. The first reference to Chianti Classico appeared in a document as early as 1398 yet Borgo Scopeto is a great example of the new breed of modern yet classic Chianti estates. Borgonero is Gnudi's 'Super Tuscan' blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Rich and spicy yet balanced and elegant, it is the perfect red to serve with pasta, risotto, veal, chicken and/or Italian cheeses. As an interesting side note, the beautiful ancient Scopeto estate was featured in the movie, 'Letters to Juliet,' starring Vanessa Redgrave, Amanda Seyfried, and Gael Garcia Bernal; the landscape was pure Tuscany with its cypress trees and rolling vineyards.

Wine SpectatorA burst of cherry and raspberry fruit is followed by iron and tobacco notes in this rich, dense red. Balanced, this finds a nice groove on the lingering finish. Sangiovese, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2022. 10,000 cases made.
