Burning a dark ruby red in color, the bouquet of the Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico is full of intense but also sweet and fruity hints of black soft fruit. Overtones of noble wood, vanilla, and cocoa blend together beautifully with added cherry. Dry and firmly structured on the palate, the wine is austere and elegant in the mouth. Perfectly balanced, the persistence of flavor leads into a continually cherry-filled finish.
5% Merlot and 5% Colorino are added to the Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico to add depth and complexity. Traditional fermentation methods are applied, while maturation lasts 1 year in Slavonian durmast casks. The wine spends another minimum 5 months in bottle, giving an aging potential of up to ten years.
