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. 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.
