Villa Pillo Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Borgoforte 2006
Fortunate enough to visit this vineyard - then find the wine in costco - for the price point this is an excellent full bodied super tuscan.
Was impressed,Great bottle of wine.Will be even better after 2010 or 2011.Closed liquor smell nose.But the tannins and finish are so balanced for a italian wine.Wonderful job of blending.Fantastic flavors going on.Highly recomended!!!!!!Will probably most likely have a 5 rating next year.Same quality wine as his william selyem`s are.BUY more than one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lovely wine from an area near San Gimignano more famous for its whites. Also try the Vivaldaia (Cabernet Franc) and the Shiraz!!
External Reviews for Villa Pillo Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Borgoforte
Aromatic, with blackberry, black cherry and licorice. Full-bodied, with firm, silky tannins and a long, beautiful finish. Gorgeous. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2010.
The wine opens with aromas of lush cherry fruit, cola, coffee and leather. It boasts very good intensity, chewy tannins and ripe succulence on the finish. A Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend.
The reasonably priced 2001 Borgoforte IGT (equal parts Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits a dark ruby color along with a sweet perfume of red and black fruits intertwined with notions of tobacco leaves, new saddle leather, and earth. Drink this medium-bodied, well-made Italian red over the next 1-2 years.
A good red, with cherry and dried herb character. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a slightly austere finish. Needs food to mellow it out. Drink now.
