Cabreo Il Borgo shows a brilliant, deep ruby color and rich, dense aromas of wild cherry and black currant offset by notes of leather, herbs and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is velvety but complex and well-structured; the soft, ripe tannins and seductive generosity are all repeated on the elegant finish.

Wine SpectatorIntense aromas of blackberry, toasty oak and chocolate. Full-bodied, with big, juicy fruit and lots of spicy, peppery and fruity character. Long and luscious. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2008. 3,300 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Il Borgo (70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon) presents notes of earthiness, super-ripe black cherries and toasted oak in a lush, opulent style with excellent length. This well-made, tasty wine will require a few years in bottle to integrate its oak after which it should drink well to age 15 or so.

Antonio Galloni, June 2007
