Borgo Scopeto 2014 (Italy: Tuscany) (ID# 2082)

Name Borgo Scopeto 2014 (ID# 2082)
Varietal Borgonero (IGT)
Region Italy: Tuscany
Notes "A blend of 40% Sangiovese, 20% Syrah, 20% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this opens with aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit and cooking spice. The firm savory palate doles out sour cherry, cinnamon and tobacco alongside smooth tannins. Drink through 2020." (Wine Enthusiast)

Additional Notes

"Here's a wine that delivers robust aromas of dark fruit and spice. What it lacks perhaps is an authentic taste of Tuscany. The 2014 Borgonero could be from any warm climate wine zone. The fruit is plump and dark and there are pretty notes of spice, tobacco and dark chocolate to fill in the rear. The wine reveals vinous and raw fruit flavors with sticky and sweet end notes." (Wine Advocate)
