Origin Italy, Tuscany
Brand Il Borro
Polissena has a deep ruby-red color. It has an intense bouquet, with notes of underbrush and hints of red fruit. It is dry, with a good body and a pleasant hint of tannins. The balance and elegance of Polissena fully comply with the Tuscan tradition. Pairs well with all the Tuscan dishes cooked with meat, Tuscan croutons, aged cheeses, cured meats, first and main courses with games. Polissena wine pairs perfectly with hare, and wild boar.

This wine now boasts an appellation identity (previous editions were labeled as IGT Toscana). The newly minted Il Borro 2017 Valdarno di Sopra Sangiovese Vigna Polissena opens to a pretty ruby color and imparts bright berry aromas with tart raspberry and wild cherry. You might also detect a very Mediterranean note of rosemary or lavender essence, and there are faint mineral notes on the close. This is a great choice for your favorite pastas topped with a meat and tomato sauce.

Wild herbs, crushed cherry, blackberry, cedar spice box, hints of damp earth and leather tones create a classic display on the 2017 Valdarno di Sopra Petruna Vigna Polissena. On the palate, silky textures are contrasted by tart red fruits with crunchy minerality, creating a cascading effect, as masses of inner violet florals form. The finish is long, full of youthful tension but also energetic, as fine tannins coat the senses, offset by a solid core of primary fruit, promising years of development.

Intense yet streamlined, this red evokes black cherry and blackberry flavors shaded by new oak nuances of vanilla and resin. Picks up earth and tobacco leaf elements on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 10,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
