Vineyards and varieties
An ancient land
dedicated to wine making
Valdarno where Il Borro is situated has an ancient vocation which is that of making wines of excellence. The area is characterized by unique soil and climate conditions and this influences the structure and texture of the wines and places the emphasis on each single type of vine and its ability to adapt to the environment, thus ennobling the wine’s specific characteristics.
Vine varieties and territorial connotation
The wines that are produced have a strong territorial connotation; this is the central theme of Il Borro’s winemaking philosophy. Each single vine variety is exalted in order to create wines that clearly reflect the geographic environment. Native vines, such as Sangiovese, are cultivated together with international vines such Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah in order to obtain the most authentic expression of the territory.
The vineyards are cultivated on a land that is geologically “marked” by the waters of the great lakes, which in the Pliocene era covered the entire valley of the Val d’Arno. The parent rock is sandstone or strong stone which is the foundation of the soil which has a rich mix of skeletal soil and sandy-clay: hence this soil is ideal for growing vines
Traditions and Sustainability
As of 2012, all chemical products were totally eliminated and vineyards started to be managed according to the principles of organic agriculture, with the inclusion of biodynamic procedures aimed at increasing product sustainability. The goal of our sustainable organic philosophy is to create a closed company productive cycle and to favor biodiversity by creating complex ecosystems. Organized tours open the doors to the wine cellar and lead the way to an oenological and cultural journey into the heart of winemaking. The tour is much more than just looking at the vineyards, taking in the view and tasting the wine. With an expert guide, it becomes an all-inclusive experience that encompasses the discovery of the vineyards, the cellar, the wine, art and architecture.
