Cabreo Il Borgo 2016
Great structure and very elegant with a superb finesse. The aromas are complex with distinctive flavors of fresh black fruits, leather and forest floor with silky tannins and a very long finish. Pairs well with roast beef and aged hard cheeses.
The 2016 Cabreo Il Borgo brings together all the elements of the Folonari style nicely. Mocha, black cherry, espresso, licorice and sweet oak all meld together in an attractive, supple Tuscan red that will drink well with minimal cellaring. In 2016, Cabreo is more refined and nuanced than I remember seeing in the past. Sweet floral notes add lift through to the silky finish.
This rich, black cherry- and blackberry-flavored red features an undercurrent of iron and sanguine notes. Dense, dusty tannins lend support, keeping this vibrant and long. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2027.
