More Info: Borrigiano is the first wine from Il Borro winery under the designation “Valdarno di Sopra DOC” and with the Organic certification. It is produced after years of dedication to research, experimentation and enthusiasm in creating quality wines. The vineyards are planted at a density of 5000 vines per hectare with pruned-spur cordon trained system at 100cm above the ground. Each plant produces up to 1kh of grapes or 4500 kh of grapes per hectare yielding about 3,000 litres of wine. The production has been accomplished through an alternative system making use of large oak casks of 75hl and 50hl as well as the refrigeration of the grapes followed by a cold maceration lasting two days. The grapes of Sangiovese, Syrah and Merlot are hand-harvested when technological and phoelic maturuty are reached. The refrigeration at 7°C and the cold maceration in large oak barrels allow to maintain the complexity of the aromatic compounds naturally present in grapes. Subsequently the temperature-controlled fermentation (28°C) takes place and it is followed by an aging of 10 months in large wooden casks.
