95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  The 2013 Il Borro is a delicious wine that I have tasted several times over the past few months. It presents seamless aromatic integration with luscious dark fruit, proportioned doses of spice, tobacco and sweet blackberry flavors. This wine offers velvety softness and plumpness over a richly extracted mouthfeel and sweet oak tannins. The slightly cooler 2013 vintage reveals very long persistence with pretty nuances of moist earth, rum cake and cherry liqueur. This is a landmark wine from the Il Borro estate in Tuscany.

  Gorgeous aromas of blueberry, walnut, coffee and sage follow through to a full body, fine tannins and a polished finish. A serious red with depth and finesse.   (7/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator

  This dense, powerful red, which starts out with plenty of oak spice and resin elements surrounding a core of plum, cherry, tobacco and iron flavors, is still oaky now, needing time to absorb the spice and resinous notes. Firm, dry finish. Better than previously reviewed. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Petit Verdot. Best from 2018 through 2028.

  Made with 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah and 5% Petit Verdot, this has subdued aromas suggesting underbrush, clove, dark-skinned berry and French oak. The smooth vibrant palate delivers red currant, unripe cherry, mocha and dried sage alongside fine-grained tannins. An orange zest note closes the finish.  
Il Borro presents an intense purplish color. The aroma is intense, full, concentrated, with hints of wild berries and hints of spice. The taste is dry, full-bodied and with soft tannins, firm and well blended. Remarkably persistent.

Serve with Tuscan specialties, meat, crostini, cheese, cold cuts, pasta and venison. Il Borro also pairs well with Asian dishes and a good old hamburger.
