External Reviews for Villa Pillo Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Borgoforte
Aromas of tea, berry and leather. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and fruity, leathery aftertaste.
Borgoforte is a well built and very well priced super Tuscan blend that would taste great with meatloaf and mashed potatoes. The wine is dense and round in the mouth with pretty but simple aromas of wild cherry and blueberry.
Sweet blackberry and cherry aromas and flavors lead to a full body, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2011.
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.
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.
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 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 1ndash;2 years.
